The good life in Denmark – move to Ringkøbing-Skjern

RENT an apartment or a house in the city

Find housing from Home

When you have found a job in Denmark it is a good idea to find a place to live before you move to here. Below you will find a couple of suggestions as to what to do.

Ask your employer about the housing options. Perhaps the company knows of vacant housing close to the workplace, or perhaps it can put you in contact with others who do.

Search on the free housing portal Akutbolig.dk or Boliga. Search for rented accommodation in our biggest towns: 6880 Tarm, 6900 Skjern, 6920 Videbæk, 6950 Ringkøbing or 6960 Hvide Sande. The postal codes also cover villages nearby. Contact housing associations or private landlords regarding the opportunities of renting a flat or a house in the area in which you want to settle. See contact information arranged  according to the biggest towns under HOUSING FOR RENT or contact the NEWCOMERS’ GUIDE of the area of the municipality in which you want to settle.

Use THE GROUP on Facebook with "Hus/bolig til leje/salg i Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune". Here you can for example search for a house or a place for rent.

Contact the local CIVIC ASSOCIATIONS-/PARISH ASSOCIATIONS, who know of local landlords. Or via the MAP you may be able to find information about vacant houses on the website of the village to which you would like to move.

You are also welcome to search for a home by making a Facebook-post on flytmodvest.dk

Ioana and Sorin

 
Romanian Family:

We have been made very welcome

”We love our country, Romania, but we have also grown very fond of Denmark which has become our home,” says 37-year-old Sorin Ungureanu who - together with his wife Ioana and their two children - find themselves so much at home that in the autumn of 2017 they bought the house of their dreams in Borris. Borris is a town with approximately 800 inhabitants in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality – geographically the biggest municipality in Denmark.

“We have been living here since 2011 and our children are fully integrated in the local community and gradually, so are we. We have been made to feel really welcome in this town. People gladly help us and we are very happy about living here,” Sorin says whilst simultaneously smiling at Erling Søndergaard - one of the passionate locals who likes to give a lending hand. Erling has helped the family with the purchase of their house, and as a friend of the family he joins our conversation as to why Sorin and Ioana came to Denmark and what it is like for a foreign family to move to Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.

”We are also happy having you here. We can tell that you like being here, and you have also done a great deal to become a part of the community,” Erling points out referring to the fact that Sorin among others has been active in leading a father-child gymnastics team and a table tennis team in town.

Johanna and Malte

 
German family:

Good working conditions leaving room for a family life close to the North Sea

The North Sea. Proper wages – on time – and working conditions leaving room for a good family life with children. Those are the really big advantages pointed out by the German couple Malte and Johanna Mayrberger when moving from the city of Berlin to the seaport of Hvide Sande. Well yes – into the bargain is also the possibility of buying your own house and the fact that people are friendly and polite.

”We would never have been able to buy a house in Germany. You need to provide a down payment of half the price to obtain a loan for the remaining, and yet it is very difficult and sometimes impossible to qualify for a mortgage,” Malte explains, and Johanna adds:

”At any rate we would not have been able to afford having a child, a car, going on holidays, which we do every year, and have time for leisure activities.”

Malte and Johanna moved to Hvide Sande on the 1st November nine years ago and have settled in fine.
