Are you an international and new to Lolland? 

Lolland is an attractive area to settle into, whether you are moving here alone or together with your family. Our area is blessed with a fantastic nature, a large labour market, a dynamic housing market, a well-functioning infrastructure, and a healthy culture of work-life balance.

In addition, the city council has decided to establish the country’s first public, international school in the heart of Maribo, offering a high-quality, bilingual school program for your children, free of charge.

Furthermore, we have a variety of leisure activities and clubs to choose from. These offerings are great opportunities to socialise, stay active with your family and meet new friends.

We expect an influx of new international residents in the area in the years ahead, so you will in no means be alone as an expat. Lolland Municipality is working towards creating a new international hub, where expats and Danes can meet and build strong relationships

We hope that you will be an active part of our local community, learn and participate in the Danish traditions and contribute to the development of our area.
