Volunteer, workaway, intern, digital nomad, working holiday in Denmark?

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionOur Bed & Breakfast is situated in an old deanery (approx. 160 years old) in a small village.
    I (Helene) am 61 years old, I live in an apartment at the B&B. My son (Daniel) & his wife (Melania) also live at the B&B in one of the apartments.

    We are also using the house for other business-related activities, besides the B&B.
    We run some online activities from here and have clients for psychotherapy and courses for private, companies and the government. WorkAways have nothing to do with these jobs.

    International travelers, volunteers, digital nomads, etc. spending time at our B&B on a work and travel program will find a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing place to find yourself. Experiencing the local area or go by bus or train to nearby interesting cities, Horsens, Skanderborg, Aarhus, Aalborg, Odense, Vejle, Fredericia, Silkeborg, Billund, Copenhagen, Hamburg, etc.

    Culture:
    Working and interacting with Danes allows international travelers to build personal relationships and learn about Danish culture from a local perspective.
    In the B&B, we have many international customers, mainly from Europe, where the possibility of meeting new people also occurs.
    Help us understand your culture with your insight from growing up and living there.

    Help:
    At our Bed & Breakfast, we need help with cleaning, gardening, general maintenance, and renovation/building of smaller projects.

    Why do we need your help?
    There is always enough to do when you have a big garden and a big house, and we think it's a great way to get some help and meet other cultures, in exchange for food, lodging, and insight into the Danish culture.

    Shifts:
    5 hours a day, 20-25 hours a week, 2-3 days off a week.
    We can easily arrange to get you more connected days off if you need it.

    Accommodation:
    We will provide a 15 square meters room, with a private entrance. It is fully furnished, double bed, tv, etc. There is unlimited internet, fiber 250/250 shared with guests.
    Toilet, bath, kitchen, washing machine, dryer, etc. are all free to use.
    Food is provided for the whole stay.
    In the summer you are free to also stay in a caravan or a tent if you want.

    What else:

    Bus:
    There is 3 km to the nearest bus, from there you can go to Horsens or Aarhus. From Aarhus/Horsens/Skanderborg there are trains to the rest of Denmark. When we have the time we will gladly drive you to the bus or even the train

    Flextaxa:
    In Denmark, we have something called Flextaxa, it's a very cheap way (Bus prices) It will pick you up here and transport you to Horsens or Skanderborg train station.

    How to order a Flextaxa:
    Order by phone on +45 87 40 83 00 (press 2) Monday - Sunday 7.00 - 20.00.
    They can pick you up from 06:00 to 24:00 but ask.
    You have to order Flextur at least one hour before pickup.
    You can tell them when you want to be picked up approximately or when you have to be at one of the stations at the latest time.

    By trains, bus, local tramp /Flixbus, and local buses) you can easily visit some bigger cities.
    Such as Horsens, Skanderborg, Aarhus, Odense, Aalborg, Grenaa, Vejle, Fredericia, Silkeborg, Copenhagen, Hamburg, etc.

    There is a lot of smaller sights nearby, the area is very good for cycling, walking, etc.
    We can provide a cycle free to use.

    In Aarhus, Horsens, and Skanderborg there are rich possibilities to see a lot of Danish & international culture, meet young and old, go out, take a course, etc.

    You will be living in a very relaxing and calm side of Denmark (Søhjlandet/The Lake-highland), but still very close to a lot of interesting sites and places, like Aarhus 32 km (next biggest city in DK), Horsens 15 km, Skanderborg 15 km.

    Law:
    Because of the Danish law, all WorkAways outside the EU have to follow some laws when they apply for a Working Holiday Visa. European citizens have no restrictions. If you arrive here on a Working Holiday Visa it is normally granted for a year. How much you are allowed to work during that year differs from country to country, see the links below.
