Where to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Copenhagen?
Copenhagen celebrates New Year’s Eve with a bang. Fireworks across the city lasting for hours means that you may want to pick a destination within easy walking distance from your hotel. Here are three great options:
Restaurants accept table reservations and there are early fireworks. The gardens close at 00:30.
Many restaurants accept table reservations. The perfect backdrop for your celebrations. Head to the harbour bridge (Inderhavnsbroen) for a full view of the city’s fireworks.
The Circle Bridge.
Avoid the midnight conundrum of the pedestrian street and city hall square and head to the Circle Bridge, which offers a full view of the city’s firework displays.
Caution! Remember to bring protective glasses and ear plugs. Copenhagen really does celebrate New Year with a bang.
