The cool seasons in the heart-warming Danish capital
Autumn and early winter is the most wonderful and magical time of year in Copenhagen – and the best time to experience a little Danish hygge.
Don’t miss the city’s 850th anniversary on 2 September – with free pastries and beer. You can also enjoy sound art on the city’s new cultural pier, Ofelia Plads. Tivoli Gardens dresses up for Halloween 13 October – 5 November 2017, inviting you to enjoy spooky family fun. This year, the Halloween season coincides with the opening of the splendid new food court, Tivoli Corner, featuring dozens of visit-worthy food bars. Indeed, winter marks the high season for the city’s culinary experiences – at easygoing eateries and warm-lit Nordic-centred restaurants citywide.
On 19 November 2017, Tivoli Gardens transforms into a winter wonderland with rides, Christmas markets and entertainment for the whole family. There is truly nowhere quite like it anywhere in the world. Throughout December, Copenhagen’s square-mile city centre with townhouse boutiques, historic shopping streets, romantic canals and grand department stores brim with Christmas shoppers, who are all out to enjoy the yuletide decorations and Copenhagen’s unique wintery spirit.
