Socializing as an expat in Aarhus
Socializing as an expat abroad most of the time is hard, especially in the beginning and.. if your chosen destination is Denmark.
A lot of times Danes are perceived as distant but don’t judge a book by its cover. First step for anyone when coming to Denmark is- letting go of all the judgement and stereotypes. You will be surprised to find out how welcoming and open is Danish society once you overcome the fear of being the first to approach someone.
Aarhus is a multicultural city and here you will be able to socialize with not only Danes but people all over the world. However, the key to success and networking is to being open yourself- you have to take the first step and soon you will find yourself immersed in the lively day to day life of Aarhus, making new friends and falling in love with Denmark day by day.
