Best Time to Visit Copenhagen

Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark, renowned for its picturesque canals, colorful buildings, and vibrant culture.

But when is the best time to visit? Let’s take a look.

1. Spring in Copenhagen (March-May)

March through May offer mild weather in Copenhagen, making it an ideal season for sightseeing. During this time, the days are longer, so you have plenty of time to explore all the attractions.

There are plenty of festivals that occur during Spring, including the International Jazz Festival in April and CPH STAGE in May. If you’re visiting during this period, make sure to bring a lightweight coat or jacket as temperatures can still be chilly.

2. Summer in Copenhagen (June-August)

This is considered one of the best times to visit Copenhagen as temperatures range from cool to warm and there is no shortage of things to do. During the summer months, outdoor activities abound such as kayaking on the canals or cycling around the city.

There are also many cultural events taking place such as Roskilde Festival in June and Distortion Music Festival in June/July. This is also a peak tourist season so prices tend to be higher than at other times of the year.

3. Autumn in Copenhagen (September-November)

The fall months are an excellent time for visitors who want to experience Copenhagen without too much crowds and high prices from summer travelers.

Temperatures start cooling down but there are still a few sunny days that allow visitors to enjoy outdoor activities like walking along Strøget Street or exploring Tivoli Gardens. October brings some great festivals such as Culture Night and Øllets Dag beer festival!


No matter what time of year you choose to visit Copenhagen, there’s always something exciting happening! Whether it’s springtime festivals or fall foliage, this charming city has plenty of attractions that will make your trip unforgettable!

With careful planning and consideration of your budget and preferences, you can find the perfect time for your trip!
