Denmark named one of the richest and most expensive countries in the World. Also, a very happiest country where crime, theft and corruption are just very less.


Millions of people every year tour Denmark's beautiful cities and share their experiences. Their compliments and reviews over the happiest country, as the cities in Denmark, achieve many rewards because of the country that represents fascinating nature, the places like restaurants, parks, nightclubs or bars and colorful houses.

Depending on the scope and purpose of the research, happiness is often measured using objective indicators (data on crime, income, civic engagement and health) and subjective methods, such as asking people how frequently they experience positive and negative emotions.


Here are some reasons that you need to know why Denmark is called one of the happiest countries in the World.


What makes the Danes so happy? Is it the tuition-free access to high-quality education, or the no-fee public health care? Is it the relative lack of crime and corruption, or just plain Danish hygge?

According to the World Happiness Report, happiness is closely linked to social equality and community spirit - and Denmark does well in both. Denmark has a high level of equality and a strong sense of common responsibility for social welfare.

Most healthcare in Denmark is provided with no fee to the patient. University students pay no tuition and receive a grant to help cover expenses while studying. Childcare is subsidized. And the elderly receive pensions and are provided with care helpers who visit them at home.



Trust is an essential value in Danish culture and society, and a significant factor in Danish happiness. In Denmark, the default is to trust one another when it comes to business, government, or personal relationships. Honesty is expected, and corruption in business or among public servants is very rare.

The relatively high level of safety in Denmark compared to many other countries means that Danish children enjoy much more freedom and independence than their counterparts elsewhere in the world. It is common to see children traveling alone on public transport as young as age 8 or 9 - the other passengers keep an eye on them. And it is usually safe to walk or bicycle in Denmark at any time of the day or night.

"People of Denmark feel happiest and empowered to change things in their lives," says Professor Bjørnskov. "What is special about Danish society is that it allows people to choose the kind of life they want to live. They rarely get caught in a trap. This means they're more satisfied with their lives."



Denmark is a unique place. It’s home to some of the most notable brands in the world, as well as a range of fantastic myths, legends and stories. Famous for its stunning scenery, clean air and beaches, culture and fantastic quality of life, it’s easy to see why anyone would be happy and happiest to live here.
