Moving to Germany from Denmark

International Movers Denmark to Germany


In Denmark, aebleflæsk is a popular traditional food made up of salted pork belly fried with apples and sugar. This favorite dish is most often enjoyed with none other than Germany’s favorite drink, beer. How could you possibly go wrong?

If you’re a foodie you have a lot to look forward to when you move to Germany, but you have to know that moving to another country is more than just learning about what you can eat there. It’s unfortunate, but there are still a ton of details to pay attention to, such as how to pack for international shipping, and paperwork that must be completed. This guide will give you the basics.

Cost to Move from Denmark to Germany

Moving from Denmark to Germany is usually done over land by shipping container, carried by Europe’s extensive railway system. On average, moving a full-container load over land from Denmark to Germany will cost between kr11,000 – kr16,000 and your shipment will arrive in 1-3 days. Half-container loads are usually a few hundred less. With sea transport, the expense charged by moving companies will be much more, (in the ballpark of kr39,700 – kr54,100) and the trip could take more than 3 weeks.

Importing Household Goods to Germany

As a citizen of Denmark, an EU member country, you don’t need a residence permit to move to Germany.

Another frequent question asked about importing is how much you will owe for customs duty and taxes. Fortunately, your goods can be freely imported without a need for customs declaration or taxes.

Within two weeks of your arrival, you will have some minor paperwork requirements. You must register with the local police, or Bürgeramt and visit your local residency office. These offices will help you apply and receive your official certificate of registration (Meldebestätigung).

You must present the following documents to obtain your certificate of registration:

  • Valid EU passport or national identity card
  • A completed registration form (Anmeldeformular)
  • A copy of the lease or rental agreement (Mietvertrag) as proof of residence in Germany

Importing a Vehicle to Germany

Importing a vehicle to Germany from Denmark can be as simple as driving it across the border, at least in the short term. No taxes or special paperwork are needed for stays under six months,  but if you plan to stay longer, you must officially register your vehicle in Germany and pay applicable road taxes.
