We Found a Dream Home in the City of Dreams

"We will probably never move from here. Here they do things differently and there is room for other thoughts and people with ideas, drive, and initiative."

The Kroll Bodilsen family, consisting of Jan, Lisa, and their daughter Caroline, moved from their home of 20 years in Aarhus, when they accidentally found their dream house in Randers. When the growing family demanded more space and the housing situation in Aarhus became increasingly overheated, the family decided to look other places for a new home.

"We gave DKK 500,000 for the plot of land in Randers, where a plot of land with similar views cost twice as much in Aarhus," says Jan Kroll Bodilsen.

The Kroll Bodilsen family quickly discovered that their dream house was also located in the city of dreams.

"We have really connected with the city, and we have built up a lot of good acquaintances," says Jan, adding that both Randers' culture and nature has surprised all three of them positively. He praises Randers Rainforest, Randers Elite Sports College, the city's concert hall and theatre, Værket, which the family finds very interesting, and the surrounding nature that encourage them to walk.
