When to Visit Copenhagen?
Denmark has a more pleasant climate than its Nordic neighbors, due to warm air from the Gulf Stream. In the summer, Copenhagen comes alive with sidewalk cafes, festivals and tourists. This is the best season to visit Copenhagen weather wise, since the days are long, sunny and cloudless. Everything is in bloom but prices tend to be high and you'll mingle with big crowds. Just pack an umbrella since July and August are the wettest months in Denmark!Read more: A Travel Guide to Copenhagen, for First Time Visitors
The shoulder season, from March to May and September to October, is a good time to visit Copenhagen if you prefer to avoid peak season and don't mind chillier weather. Pack a couple jackets and layers so you won't get cold. Note that as early as October, the nights start to get shorter!
We visited in late May and early June and thought the trip was perfect – sunny days, not too many crowds and weather in the 40s – mid 50s.Read more: Should You Buy a Copenhagen Card for Your Trip?
Copenhagen in Winter
Temperatures are bitter from November to February but prices are also at their lowest, so bargain travelers should head to Copenhagen in winter. Christmas is a fun time since Copenhagen celebrates with classic Danish Christmas meals, lots of open air Christmas markets and seasonal festivities at attractions like Tivoli. Christmas can be popular so you might notice a spike in room rates around this time. There's also only a few hours of daylight each day, so your sightseeing time will be restricted.Read more: Copenhagen's Prettiest Royal Castles
