Egedal rated the best municipality in Denmark
If you find yourself in Ølstykke, Veksø or Stenløse in north Zealand, you can rest assured that you are in the best municipality in Denmark.
Well … at least according to housing website Findboliger.dk, which has rated 95 of Denmark’s 98 municipalities across a number of parameters.
Based on nine parameters, such as income, health, crime, employment and education, Findboliger.dk has ranked Egedal Municipality the best in the country with a score of 8.00 out of 10.
Favrskov Municipality in Jutland came in second place with a score of 7.57, followed by Gentofte (7.54), Roskilde (7.43) and Solrød (7.43).
Lyngby-Taarbæk (7.41), Rudersdal (7.35), Lejre (7.24), Skanderborg (7.22) and Allerød (7.20) completed the top 10.
No LOLs in Lolland
Other notables were Herning (6.70), Odense (6.67), Viborg (6.54), Horsens (6.50), Køge (6.43), Randers (6.31), Vejle (6.26), Esbjerg (6.19), Aalborg (5.91), Helsingør (5.87) and Copenhagen (5.44).
Copenhagen scored high in the parameters of health, education and employment, but struggled in most other categories.
Lolland Municipality had the dubious honour of ranking last with a score of just 3.96, preceded by Brøndby (4.20) and Guldborgsund (4.89).
The only three municipalities not part of the ranking were Frederiksberg, Læsø and Fanø.
