Both Aarhus and Aalborg have placed themselves above Copenhagen in one preply.com ranking of the best cities to raise a family in Europe.
Aarhus did particularly well with an overall seventh place ahead of Aalborg (23) and Copenhagen (50). They were the only three Danish cities on a ranking list that rated 130.
Leisure and lifestyle failure
The ranking was based on three parameters: ‘Education’, ‘Health and safety’ and ‘Leisure and lifestyle’. And it is fair to say that Copenhagen did not do very well in any of them when they became number 48, 19 and 90.
Aarhus (9, 5, 41) and Aalborg (17, 8, 65) were both let down by their ‘Leisure and Lifestyle’ scores.
Among the assessed subcategories were the relationship between teachers and students, educational attractions, recreational spaces, free health care and the length of maternity / paternity leave.
