    • House prices...

      Skagen Dec 16, 2014 at 3:06 AM


      I'd really appreciate an idea of house prices in Skagen. Both to buy and to rent.

      Also, is there a local board or paper where houses are advertised?

      Many thanks

    • Scandinavia travel tips?

      Denmark Nov 22, 2014 at 3:31 PM

      Hello! This is going to be a relatively hefty question but ...

      I'm planning on going on a 2~3 month long trip through Scandinavia+ parts of Europe Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Italy .. maybe Iceland ? after I graduate from university. Of course my budget will be limited currently working as much as I can for now to build funds and hopefully will have about 15000$USD by the time I depart but at the same time money is not the issue for now ...

      I was wondering more how long it would be recommended for me to stay in each country? Of course it varies by person stayed in Japan for about a month but still feel like I didn't see enough, whereas my cousin went for 5 days and that was good enough for her, but maybe an average? A week? a few days? And most importantly, when I should go?

      My interests are quite varied-- when I traveled through Asia, I did a lot of shopping, mostly stayed in big cities, and threw some action in diving, bungee jumping, paragliding, but I also really really like nature, like the countryside, or the mountains, so I was hoping to concentrate more on that and then maybe go to the city for 1~2 days ??? I'm honestly up for any kind of suggestion and can just pick and choose what sounds most suitable for what I want?

      At the mention of the mountains, I see a lot of photos that I assume are taken around the valleys between mountain ranges ... Is it safe to assume that a lot of people just hitch tents up on the mountains and sleep there? Is it legal to just hitch a tent up anywhere?
      If I play to fly between the countries I heard is cheaper than trains, would I be allowed to have a tent in my carry on .. if it even fits? I kind of wanted to go in winter~spring time so I'm not sure if it's even too freezing cold to do that without risking my health at that time. My main priority is of course to see the aurora borealis, so I need to be in Norway when it's still relatively cold .. which means I would need to go either late autumn into the early winters, or late winters into the early spring.
      I also really really like polar bears so I would hope to see some of them roaming about but I don't think that's really feasible..

      I have tons more questions but I feel I should stop here for now? Are there any native Scandinavians that can please bestow me with knowledge? Thank you so much for taking the time to read my questions !

      Odense before Christmas market

      by ElenaKKKK Online Now Jun 21, 2014 at 5:06 AM

      Is it worth to stay couple of nights in Odense a week before the opening of Christmas market? or during this very time the town, especially the old centre, will be stuffed by trucks, boxes and constructions for CM preparations? I had such experience before, and it made walking and wandering around a city not as pleasant as it could be..(just have to tell in advance, parking problems are not a point: I'll travel by public transport)

    • Trying to plan a trip to Odense...need LOTS of help!

      by eneilson Online Now Sep 27, 2010 at 8:27 AM

      Hi all,

      New here, and frankly quite new to travel in general. I've never left the states, and after getting out of a long term relationship, I think it's time I do. My great grandfather came to America from Odense; I want to find out who I am, and where I'm from.

      Being new to international travel, I don't know where to start when planning this trip. Here is what I know...

      * I'd like the trip to last for a total of two weeks.
      * I'd like to spend the majority of time in Odense, but perhaps take some time to check out other interesting nearby areas.

      Money is a big concern, and I want to be able to do this as inexpensively as possible,but without sacrificing my own comfort. Thus, I need suggestions on -

      * Travel
      * Lodging
      * Food (would like to splurge a bit on this...)

      With that said, what should I know about Odense/Denmark/traveling abroad in general that I probably don't at the moment? I plan on visiting at the beginning of December; is this a good/bad time of the year to visit?

      Any and all help is MUCH appreciated!

      I was recommended this city as a smaller, kinder, more hospitable alternative from Copenhagen and was curious when the best time to visit might be to enjoy the nightlife and meet the locals?

      I guess when the university starts up (September?) and on the weekend?

    • Moving to Odense...

      by lollavid Online Now May 29, 2005 at 11:28 AM

      Hi all,
      Though this isn't the most active forum, I was hoping to get some help. I am moving to Odense in August and have 2 questions:
      1) Where can I find out about a realistic range of prices for an apartment? My wife and I want something with at least a living room, bedroom and office that is nice... and lots of windows! :) Is there a newspaper I can look at or can someone just give me a rough estimate of prices?
      2) We are also going to buy a car. My wife is German and I am wondering if it is cheaper to buy in Germany than Denmark?.... this may be a tough question to answer but any help would be great.

      okay, if it turns out that I get some responses, I am sure I'll have plenty more questions in the next couple weeks...

    • Apartment in Odense

      Hi, The lab secretary has found a 120 kvm apartment with 3 rooms, tv and internet connection for us (me, husband and one-year -old child). It is in a 2nd floor, overlooking a park. The price is DKK 7000 including water, heat and electricity. Does it sound reasonable or very expensive? How much can water, heat and electricity cost? It sounds really expensive to me... Should I tell her to rent it? She says we can get out of the lease with one month notice if we want. Thanks! Dolores.

    • Clothes for winter survival in Odense

      by Dolo Online Now Oct 28, 2004 at 9:23 AM

      Hi, I am moving to Odense in mid-January to work in the University as a post-doc. I do not have a clue about what kind of shoes and clothes should we wear. Does it snow? Do we really need completely-water-proof shoes and coats? Should I buy shoes here in Argentina or over there? The best I have been able to find here (we are in spring) are Hi-tech trekking shoes, supposedly water proof, that cost approx. 100 USD. How much does a pair of appropiate shoes cost there? Thanks a lot for your attention.

      London to Odense Flights

      by MikeStarr5 Online Now Sep 10, 2004 at 2:33 PM

      I have not been to Odense before but would like to go for a short trip, maybe 2 or 3 days, just to get a flavour of the place and meet up with some friends. Would anybody know if it is possible to fly direct to Odense Airport from London at the start of October. I am looking at cheap RyanAir / EasyJet type flights not business class. If I can't fly cheaply direct, which Danish airport would be the easiest and quickest to go to, assuming that I am going to take the train the rest of the way to Odense. I am wondering also about the feasibility of going to Copenhagen with EasyJet and then catching a very short local flight with someone like Mærsk. Any suggestions ?
