Can I purchase a vacation home in Denmark?
Normally foreign-residents cannot acquire a vacation home in Denmark, except if you are able to document a special connection to Denmark. In that case, you may apply for permission at the Danish Ministry of Justice. Permission is granted based on an assessment of the applicant´s previous stays in Denmark, family connections, language and cultural connection to the country.
A flexbolig-permisson allows you to purchase a permanent residence without residential requirements. A flexbolig therefore allows you to own a house in Denmark to use as a vacation home. Flexbolig are not restricted to specific areas like vacation homes are, and flexboliger are often at lower prices than a regular vacation home.
Contact the current municipality to apply for flexbolig-permission, or the local real estate agents for further information.
