Preparing For Your Move to Berlin

For young professionals attracted to living in Germany, a move to Berlin seems like an obvious choice. Considered one of the top nightclub capitals of Europe, Berlin is also a great place to do business, and has a strong economy to prove it. It’s also – surprisingly – far less expensive to live in Germany’s capital than you would imagine. The cost of rents, travel and culture is low, so expats can enjoy a relatively high standard of living in this diverse, multi-ethnic city.

Planning a Move to Holland?

Are you moving to Holland, or to the Netherlands? And will the people you meet there be ‘Netherlanders’ or Dutch? Is it OK to refer to the country as Holland? Does being referred to a ‘Dutch’ offend people? Don’t worry if you’re confused; it’s a confusing topic.

Holland refers to part of the country situated in the north – which happens to be the most densely populated. The Netherlands refers to the whole country. People living in all areas of the Netherlands refer to themselves as Dutch. And Holland is a perfectly fine abbreviation to use when referring to the Netherlands.

Relocating to Belgium

Belgium may not be the largest country in the EU but it certainly packs a powerful global punch. Brussels is the home of the European Parliament, as well as NATO, and the European Commission. This ensures its place as a modern international city, with a history dating back to its medieval foundations. Relocating to Belgium provides a feast of cities to explore, from the dynamic student friendly Liege, to the ‘Art Deco Capital’, Ghent.

How to Move From England to Norway

A recent research report conducted by E-on found that moving home was considered ‘the most stressful life event’ for 62% of 2,000 people surveyed. What the survey didn’t ask was whether moving overseas would be considered more, or less, stressful. Schepens has been moving families abroad for over a century now and, based on our experience, we would say that a European move is considered extremely stressful by many of the movers we encounter.
