Welcome to Hjørring Municipality

Dear Newcomer to Hjørring Municipality

Hjørring Municipality lies in the heart of Vendsyssel. From here you have easy access to some of Denmark’s most beautiful scenery, a rich and vibrant city life and a wealth of exciting educational opportunities and leisure activities. We believe – and hope you will experience it as well – that Hjørring Municipality has a lot offer.

At Hjørring Municipality we are aware of the fact that it is not always easy to settle in a new country. You will encounter new people and new ways of doing things. In particular, the initial period will provide numerous challenges and may seem a bit overwhelming.

We have therefore created this website, where you and your family can find answers to many of the questions that may arise, when you move to Denmark. This way we will relieve you from the time consuming hunt for information in cyberspace and thus let you spend more time getting to know your new country.

We hope that you will find this website useful.
