What is a housing rental?

A rental property is a dwelling that you rent instead of buying. It can be an apartment, a house, a room, or a townhouse. It is a flexible solution that allows you to live in a specific area without committing to purchasing a property.

When you rent a property, you pay a monthly rent depending on the size, location, and other factors. When renting, it's crucial to read the lease agreement thoroughly, so you know what is included in the rent and what obligations you have as a tenant.

There are many advantages to renting a property. Firstly, it can be cheaper compared to other forms of housing, meaning you can save money and spend it on other things. Secondly, it can be easier to move when you rent, as you don’t need to sell your property before moving. Thirdly, in many rental properties, you receive assistance from the landlord or the property company if there are issues with the rental, such as burst water pipes, blocked drains, etc.

All in all, renting is a good solution for those who want flexibility and do not want to commit to one place. A rental can be a cheaper solution than other forms of housing, and it is easy and flexible to move again when you rent, as you do not need to find a buyer, but simply need to terminate the lease and move to a new property when the rental period expires.

There are many different types of properties one can rent, including:

Apartment for rent in Copenhagen

An apartment is a private dwelling in a multi-story building. Renting an apartment can be a good choice if you want to be close to the city, have access to public transport, and live close to other people. Read more about apartment for rent by clicking the link.

House for rent in Copenhagen

A house is a building that serves as a home or residence for individuals or families, where the resident has the right to use the land on which the building is located. A house usually has an associated garden and other outdoor areas such as a driveway. Read more about house for rent by clicking the link.

Room for rent in Copenhagen

A room for rent is a room that is rented out – typically as a sublet. Renting rooms is often time-limited, and one will typically sublet a room for rent for a shorter period, which can be from a few days to several months. Read more about room for rent by clicking the link.

How do you find a rental property in Copenhagen?

Finding a rental property can be a time-consuming and, at times, challenging process, depending on the current housing market situation in the area you are looking in. Start by defining your needs and desires. Then, explore the market for available rental properties, for example, by searching on housing portals like Boligdeal.dk or by contacting property companies, property managers, or housing associations. Next, arrange viewings for relevant rental properties, and make an agreement with the landlord once you have found the right rental property. 

You can see a detailed description of how to find and rent your new rental property via our guides for searching for apartments for rent, searching for rooms for rent, searching for houses for rent.

The first and most important step in your search process is to gain an overview of available rental properties that suit you.

Find an affordable long term rental

If you wish to find an economically affordable rental property, it's important to have as many options as possible to choose from. This is achieved by contacting various landlords of rental properties and scheduling viewings of the different available properties.

Once you have received the various landlords' price proposals, you can try to negotiate the price by presenting your own offer. By keeping several options open and contacting multiple landlords, you increase the chance of finding a landlord who is willing to match your offer.

The price you can negotiate depends a lot on supply and demand. So, by choosing an area with many available rental properties, you can increase the likelihood of finding a rental property at a favorable price.

Find a home for rent with the right size and layout

When you are looking for a new rental property, it is crucial that it can accommodate both your current and future needs. In other words, the rental property should be spacious enough for your current daily activities and plans you have for the near future. Are you expecting to expand your family, plan to live in the rental property for many years, or need space for a subtenant for a period?

The layout and floor plan of a home can significantly impact whether the property can meet your needs. Even if a rental property seems too small, optimizing the use of space through layout and good planning can often resolve this issue.

Useful to know when you are looking for apartment or room for long term rent in Copenhagen

What is Copenhagen?

Copenhagen (København) is the capital of Denmark and what many people consider to be the most livable city in the world. It’s a beautiful city with a rich history that’s home to many world-famous attractions, including the Little Mermaid statue and Tivoli Gardens.

Copenhagen is also a very modern city, with a lively nightlife scene and a thriving foodie culture. There’s something for everyone in Copenhagen, making it the perfect place to visit for a city break or longer holiday.

The population of Copenhagen is just over 1.2 million people, making it the largest city in Denmark. The city is located on the east coast of Zealand, the largest of the Danish islands.

When you have to find out where to rent rental properties in Copenhagen, you can easily get confused. Because Copenhagen is not just one city, like many other cities. Copenhagen consists of several districts, each with its own style and atmosphere.

The largest districts in Copenhagen are:

Frederiksberg
Østerbro
Vesterbro
Nørrebro
Inner City/Copenhagen K
Amager


Rent a rental property in Frederiksberg - get a rental property right next to CBS

It is very popular to rent a rental property in Frederiksberg, as Frederiksberg is one of the trendiest places in Copenhagen.

Some of the city's most expensive and most exclusive rental properties are in Frederiksberg. In addition, Frederiksberg is an area where you will find good shopping opportunities in the form of the Frederiksberg Center, quick access to public transport in the form of both buses and metro lines.

And last but not least, a large number of faculties from the University of Copenhagen and, not least, Copenhagen Business School are located in the middle of Frederiksberg, which makes it a very desirable area to live in for special students.

Rent a rental property on Østerbro - rental properties right by the lakes

Another place where it is very popular to rent a rental property is on Østerbro. On Østerbro you will find plenty of cozy streets with small niche shops, beautiful nature in the form of the Fælledparken and, not least, a cozy night and city life that is dominated by small bars and smaller clubs.

Østerbro is also one of the quietest neighborhoods in Copenhagen. You could say that Østerbro is 'boring' compared to both Nørrebro and Vesterbro, but if you like it to be quiet in the evening, you will not be disappointed.

On Østerbro you will also find the district of Nordhavn, which is one of the places in Copenhagen where the most construction has taken place these years.

Rent a rental property in Vesterbro - The district that never sleeps

Vesterbro is in many ways the opposite of Østerbro. There is always life here - and it is no exaggeration to say that Vesterbro is the district that 'never sleeps'. Vesterbro has many exciting rental properties and it is very desirable to rent a rental property in Vesterbro.

In the old days, Vesterbro was a working and industrial quarter, where the butcher industry in particular dominated the meat city. But it's not like that anymore. The district has undergone major development and today the old meat town has completely changed. Today, you will find plenty of good restaurants, bars, clubs and, not least, cinemas here. There is always life here, and with its location in the middle of Copenhagen, you will never be far from anything.

Rent a rental property in Nørrebro and experience Copenhagen's most diverse district

Like Vesterbro, Nørrebro is one of Copenhagen's most colorful and diverse neighborhoods, which means that it is very interesting for creatively minded people to rent a rental property in Nørrebro. This is also where young people and students stay.

Here, just like in Vesterbro, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and nightclubs that you should look forward to experiencing. One of the most popular places to live in Nørrebro is at Nørrebro's roundabout by Assistens Kirkegård and in Stefansgade.

Rent a rental property in Amager and experience the new Copenhagen

A final place that is worth highlighting in Copenhagen is Amager. Amager is part of Copenhagen - but not if you ask a native Amager.

However, Amager is home to more than 200,000 of all Copenhageners and is generally an area that has been characterized by great development in the last several years.

You will find all types of rental housing in Amager. Since Copenhagen Airport is located on Amager, you always have easy access to the metro lines, so you can get around Copenhagen in a short time.

Get around Copenhagen quickly, regardless of where you live

Copenhagen has the country's absolute best public transport system. This means that regardless of where you choose to live in Copenhagen, you can get from one end of the city to the other in a relatively short time, either by train, bus or metro.

In addition, Copenhagen also has a fantastic road network of high-quality cycle paths. Here you can feel completely safe while you pedal and whiz through the city.
