Accompanying family?


When you begin a new life in a foreign country, it is important that you feel in safe hands, and even more important is it, when you bring your family.

At the Regional Municipality of Bornholm, we are aware that moving to a new country is a big and exciting decision. We do our best to make sure that you get the information and support, you and your family need in order to be well settled.

At your left, you will find relevant information when you bring your family to Bornholm.

Besides from the information, you can find here, the online version of Citizen Service has more good-to-know-information on family life in Denmark: - Family and children.

If you have any questions, please contact the institutions and administrations directly or your Newcomer Guide, who is always ready to help you.

​Eric is from Holland and moved to Bornholm in April 2022, his wife and children are still in Holland – but are joining him this summer. Eric and his family decided to move to Bornholm because: “ We love the island. We have been here for holidays 2 times and talked about the possibility of getting a “better life” with more time for the children and to focus on our private life more than job and career. I sold my business in Holland and bought a house on Bornholm. I’m learning Danish, getting friends and enjoying life.” 

The little children's Bornholm and the first 1000 days

The Municipality of Bornholm is engaged in a large-scale project with focus on children’s welfare and development. The project is called The small children’s Bornholm. 

With The small children's Bornholm it is our goal to support children's life with special focus on the first 1000 days of children's lives, as we know that this is the most crucial period for children's further opportunities to thrive, learn and develop.
