Quite possibly the world's best place to live.
Larger cities like Copenhagen or Aarhus are exciting destinations. But most of the residents in the Triangle Region are happy to be exactly where they are.
Our seven municipalities are all different and complement each other perfectly. Together, they form a green, open and diverse region with a strong reputation for education, health, stunning nature, leisure activities, first class culture and the best of urban living.
The Triangle Region offers lower housing prices and a greater feeling of security than larger cities such as Copenhagen and Aarhus.
We may not have as many museums and theatres
as Copenhagen, but we have many more football pitches, marinas and forest trails. We may not have as many students as Aarhus, but we have a lively community of entrepreneurs, exciting start-ups and innovative businesses and services – creating some of the best jobs and career opportunities in the country.
But aside from our great location and attractive surroundings, it’s the people of the Triangle Region who create a good life for all of us. Without their involvement, we would just be an area on a map, instead of a dynamic region of talented individuals from all over the world, working together to create a meaningful and exciting future.
Welcome to the Triangle Region!

Why the Danes are so happy…
Denmark has been voted the world’s happiest country for a second year running by Columbia University’s World Happiness Report – and it’s easy to see why.
Denmark has one of the smallest gaps between rich and poor and the UN recently noted that ‘political freedom, strong social networks and an absence of corruption,’ along with, ‘good mental and physical health’ and ‘job security’ were major factors in making Denmark such a great place to live. The taxation system and generous public spending funds a strong welfare state offering free education and healthcare – so no-one’s left out in the cold.
Trust and equality are key to the Danish sense of contentment. Plus, for those of us living in the Triangle Region, there’s also the stunning nature and the space to think and breathe.
But we’re not just the happiest – we’re also one of the most efficient and effective nations in the world. More than 73% of Danes have paid employment, compared to 65% in the US.
We have world-class exports including Carlsberg, Arla and of course LEGO – the world’s second-largest toymaker.
We’re no slouches when it comes to sport and culture either. The Danish film industry is
one of the most successful in Europe; The Killing, The Bridge and Borgen have cemented our reputation for great TV; we won the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest; and Danish design is revered worldwide. We also picked up 15 medals at the last Olympics – not bad for a country with a population of just 5.5m.
Clubs and associations (known as ‘foreninger’) play a key role in leisure time in Denmark. Not only do they bring people together irrespective of cultural, social and political differences but also offer the opportunity for you to meet new people, form friendships and expand your network whilst simultaneously helping you to improve your Danish and learn more about Denmark.
A wide variety of associations and clubs are available, for sporting activities, countless hobbies and interest groups, political associations and international cultures.
Some of the associations are specifically for children or seniors, but most groups are open to all ages and levels of ability.
Around 90% of Danes are members of at least one club or association, so it’s a great way for newcomers to integrate into Danish culture while enjoying an interest, sport or hobby.
