International House Copenhagen

International House Copenhagen is a good place to meet other international citizens.

Here you can participate in the weekly free Leisure Guidance together with other international citizens and get help finding your way round the leisure activities of the city. In International House you can also pop in to the free events for international citizens that regularly take place in the house.

The events in International House are good for networking and for finding relevant information. The subjects are all the different practical issues, that are important when you are a new resident in Denmark, such as banking and insurance. In addition, there are events focusing on creating a network - for example in the workplace, through volunteering, through hobbies and leisure activities.

Look out for current events on and on
