Winter in Copenhagen - VisitCopenhagen

Winter in Denmark

While most people choose to visit Denmark during the summer months, Denmark is a fantastic place to visit in the winter! Not only would Denmark not have hygge if we didn't have our dark, cold winters, but we have all sorts of ways to entertain ourselves and have a good time: from a simple cup of hot cocoa and æbleskiver at a winter market to museums and restaurants to a month-long Christmas celebration. And let's not forget Tivoli's new winter season. Plus, popular attractions have shorter lines, making a much more pleasant experience for those who come to see the winter wonderland of Denmark.
