Time for living the good life - and money to do it
In Greater Copenhagen, you can have your cake and eat it too. Here, you won't have to choose between your job and having a life. At 5 pm almost all office spaces are deserted because people have left to hang out with friends, exercise or pick up their kids.
Greater Copenhagen is famous for being clean and green and for having bold sustainable ambitions.
It is very common to go to work by bicycle, and the quality of the water is so great you can swim in the harbour – which is very popular in the summer. There is also several green parks in the cities with outdoor workout stations and skate parks as well as BBQs that are free to use.
Food, fun and festivals
If you want a taste of the good life, Greater Copenhagen is brimming with restaurants, from cosy local eateries to Nordic cuisine Michelin Star winners, as well as busy bars. And the creative music scene offers great concert and clubbing opportunities as well as world-famous festivals such as Roskilde Festival and Copenhell.
Three times, Copenhagen has won the prestigious title as the world's most liveable city awarded by Monocle Magazine; in 2008, 2013 and 2014.
On top of all this, salary levels in the IT and games industry are highly competitive compared to most other countries in the world. So not only will you have time for living the good life, but money as well.
