Moving to Malmö

Malmö is often referred to as Sweden’s most European city. This is thanks to its geographical location on the southern coast, but it’s also a comment on the culture of the city. It’s on course for being the first city in the world to have representatives from every culture living in its bounds. At present it’s 27 short, but a massive 31% of residents come from every corner of the globe.

Schepens has a very special relationship with Sweden, as we’ve been providing removals between the UK and all its major cities and towns for over a century. We love having the opportunity to work in Malmö, but what’s it like living in Malmö day-to-day? We asked some clients who have settled in Sweden’s third largest city. Here’s what they told us.

Malmö is a coastal city in southern Sweden which is located at the eastern end of the striking Öresund Bridge (featured in the BBC drama ‘The Bridge’); it’s 8km long and connects the city with Copenhagen in Denmark. Sweden’s third largest – and happiest – city is home to the world-famous professional footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović, and is now a hub for young families and tech start-ups, with almost half of the population under 35. It’s also very diverse, with around 170 nationalities registered.

Schepens have assisted many families and business individuals move to Malmö, particularly over the past few decades. We always appreciate hearing about how they’ve settled in their new home. Here’s a collection of experiences and tips they have about living in Malmö.

Removals to Horsens

Horsens, in the East Jutland region of Denmark is primarily known as a university town, but the influx of students each year enhance, rather than define the life of this small but vibrant Danish city. It nestles between a low hills and valleys to the west, and an attractive harbour and beach to the east. Horsens has a long history but there’s no way it’s stuck in the past. It’s currently developing its industrial base providing new jobs and opportunities for the locals.

Schepens has been providing removals to Denmark for over a hundred years now. The most popular destination for clients relocating from the UK tends to be Copenhagen, 120 miles south east of Horsens. But there’s lots to recommend in this much smaller city, so here are our top attractions:

Schepens Can Help if You’re Moving From UK to Denmark

Starting to wonder if Scandanavia’s the new start you’ve been looking for? Well 18,835 Brits have already made the move, and there’s been a rapid rise in applications for citizenship over the past two years. Around a third of expats have moved there to be with a partner, but the majority are working in one of the many large companies based in Denmark, or running their own businesses.

So why the growth of interest in our northern neighbour? Well, we’ve become large-scale consumers of Scandi-noir, such as The Bridge. And, thanks to celebrities like Sandi Toksvig, we’ve realised that we have a lot more in common with northern Europeans than we might have imagined. Finally, let’s not forget that Denmark has been voted the happiest country in the world, two years running!!

Moving to Antwerp? Schepens Can Help.

Antwerp is the second largest city in Belgium and home to the biggest port in the country. Historically, this powerful trading city has the enviable reputation as diamond capital of the world. Whilst the explorers’ ships no longer sail into the city, laden with gems, the diamond quarter still exists. Antwerp offers the contemporary visitor a vibrant fashion and entertainment scene with remarkable architecture and friendly culture. It’s still very much a medieval city though, with quirky cafe-filled cobblestone paths, a riverside fortress and a truly magnificent cathedral.

However beautiful the city, the thought of moving to Antwerp can be daunting. Any European move is a complex logistical task, which is why we provide a range of services to help. Take the strain off your shoulders by hiring a professional European removals company. We are the leading removal company for Belgium, performing dozens of removals to Antwerp each year.

A couple of decades ago, Brussels had a reputation for being a city full of bureaucrats. Nothing could be further from the contemporary image it shows to the world. This vibrant, cosmopolitan city is a popular destination for British expats because of its proximity to the UK, its relationship to the rest of Europe, its culture and its multiculturalism.

Visitors are invited to experience both the 21st century metropolis and, sitting alongside it, a medieval town, brimming with culture, and providing a wealth of historical charm.
