The experience

Our Bed & Breakfast is situated in an old deanery (approx. 160 years old) in a small village.

Program Details

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 and general maintenance.

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.

We can arrange to get you more connected days off if you need it.

Rules

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 no restriction. 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.
