Living in Copenhagen
Hay4you has been providing guests from all over the world with temporary homes in Copenhagen for more than 20 years. You may be staying with us for business, pleasure, educational or family reasons, so we try to accommodate your needs as best we can.
All our apartments are owned by Copenhageners, who choose to open up their homes in order to offer you a unique slice of the city. This page will help you settle in to and take care of your new home.
Home sweet home
Living in a new place often requires some adjustments. There are always new things to learn and figures out. Each country has its own special rules and idiosyncrasies.
Registration: If you are planning to stay in Denmark for a longer period you may need to register at the International Borgerservice to receive the CPR card. You will need the CPR number to use public services and open a local bank account. As the apartments are privately owned registration is only possible at selected addresses. Please contact Hay4you for advice on registration. A DKK 500 deposit will be required for registrations and returned when de-registration is confirmed on departure.
Post: As a rule you can receive private post at your address by using a c/o address. Alternatively you can have a personal post box at our office on Knabrostræde.
Keys: You will receive the keys to the apartment from Hay4you. More and more buildings operate with system keys that serve as front door, entrance and even postbox keys. Other buildings have older systems and occasionally you may find you need to learn a little trick to open your door.
