From house hunting and picking up your first words in Danish to getting around and ordering late night food - here's are some super helpful apps to get you started.
Note: many Danish apps are only available in the Danish App Store.
Google Translate - the photo setting is especially helpful!
Duolinguo - get the basics before you start Danish school
TransferWise - Might need this for things like rent before you get a Danish bank account
Xe.com - work out what you’re paying
Mobile Pay - for paying people, bars, clubs etc
Wolt - Fresh outta Finland and just landed in Copenhagen
Just Eat - The Godfather of food delivery, founded right here in Copenhagen
Room service (web only)
Don't be surprised that you can't get food late in Copenhagen. If you're in a bind after 11 your best best is probably a hotdog from 7/11.
Here are some good places to start!

Fancy an update each time we add new content to this topic?
Founders is a startup studio based in lovely Copenhagen, Denmark. We partner with amazing entrepreneurs to build companies from zero to traction (or, idea-stage to product-market-fit).
We made this playbook based on what we've learned welcoming new desk mates, ping pong break pals and co-founders from 20+ nationalities to the Founders Family. Most of this info is already available, but it's scattered between a bunch of different sites and it can be hard to know where to start. We've pulled it all together in one place and thrown in our own recommendations so you can focus on your new job, life, adventure!
Like any good guide, our playbook is a living document that we will constantly be updating. Something you want to see in here? Help us keep the content fresh and relevant by dropping us an email! :)
We made a takeaway pdf with all the answers and tips from each topic.Download pdf version
