CaféNy - welcome meeting for newcomers

Newcomer Service Sonderborg organizes CaféNy which is a welcome meeting for Danish and international newcomers to the Municipality of Sonderborg. We meet the second Tuesday of the months February, May, August and November from 4 to 6 pm at Rådhustorvet 7, 1st floor in Sønderborg. 

During the café sessions you can meet people from all over the world, learn more about the exciting activities taking place in Sonderborg and the surrounding area and eventually meet our Partnerjob Consultant. She helps accompanying spouses and partners to find a job.

CaféNy is free of charge and the meetings are primarily conducted in English. Sign up at the latest 24 hours before the meeting takes place.

Newcomers Network Sonderborg

The Newcomers Network in Sonderborg is an informal network between Danish and international newcomers, who meet several times a month. The volunteers of the network organize e.g. bowling evenings, rowing and sailing trips, yoga sessions, a food club, a monthly meetup at a local restaurant, a German “Stammtisch” and the popular conversation group “Dansk Café”.

Do you want to meet new people through your hobby? Boblberg is a free, digital community where you meet based on common interests. The examples are many and some have found training mates, others some to knit with, some for food fun or simply some with the same desire to start new friendships.
