How and where do you want to live?
Do you want to live in a flat, a small town house, or your own detached house?
Do you want a home with lots of indoor space as well as outdoor space for vegetables and a trampoline in the backyard?
Do you want to live in the middle of nature - in a village or in the countryside?
You can find your dream house in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.
There are about 57,000 inhabitants in the biggest municipality in Denmark, so we have lots of space, houses appealing to everybody, and good offers. In round figures, half of us live in the biggest towns. One fourth lives in the villages and the last fourth lives in the countryside.
Many newcomers choose to start renting a home instead of investing in buying a home. By renting a home you get the opportunity to check out the area, before binding yourself to an owner-occupied home.
Live in the town
In the towns there are people and life around you. There is a good and varied selection of shops, cafés, and restaurants plus a lot of sights and cultural offers. The selection is both bigger and more exciting than in many other towns of the same size, because we are lucky also to have tourists to improve the customer base.
You can both rent or buy a home in the towns. Compared to other places in Denmark the price level is low, but compared to the prices in the villages of the municipality or housing in the countryside they are higher.
Live in the countryside
If you prefer more peaceful and relaxing surroundings, you can move into the countryside or close to the water. There are many options in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.

You can live in the countryside with lots of space and far away from neighbours, but it is also like living in the countryside if you choose to move to one of the many major or minor VILLAGES or just outside one of these.
The villages are located right in the middle of nature and can also offer housing overlooking both the fields and with room for a trampoline, a rabbit cage, and vegetables in the backyard.
In the villages you will get close to the day care institution, school, shop, and especially closer to the neighbours. This gives your children good playmates just around the corner and a chance for the adults to become part of the local community.
We have a tradition for an active associational life in the villages, and you will quickly get a sense of belonging, no matter whether you choose a home in the village itself or a place further out in the countryside. For information about life in the villages, click on the MAP.

To find a Home from Abroad
It may be a little bit difficult to find the home of your dream when you have just had a job and are to move to Denmark from abroad. It may be useful to have a little time to get to know the area a little better and have a look at the various options. Therefore, most foreign newcomers choose to start out by renting a home. Instead of having tied yourself financially to buying your own place it is also easier to be released from a place you have rented if - contrary to expectation - it turns out that you or your family are not happy to live in Denmark.
