Being so close to Copenhagen means that you can attend meetings in the Danish capital and then retire to your Farum retreat, whilst there is also enough happening here to make it a business hotspot in its own right. Stay in a hotel in Farum to experience the cutting edge of Danish business with a backdrop of some of Denmark's most distinctive coastline.

This said, the business activities here, which primarily concern the technology sector, show strong growth. With its focus on developing fields, such as sustainability and the digital sector, Farum is increasingly becoming an attractive place for foreign investment.
