Copenhagen’s leafy parks spring to colour, not least Tivoli Gardens and its sea of tulips, which opens on 6 April 2017. Here there are amusement park rides, restaurants and open-air entertainment. A Sakura Festival is also held under the cherry blossoms by the harbourside promenade Langelinie, 29-30 April 2017.
A city of design Copenhagen is also a city of modern design. From 27 April – 7 May, the city hosts the Copenhagen Architecture Festival with a wide program of guided walks and events. Spring is also a great time of year to discover the city by bike. Head along the Harbour Circle bicycle route for a 13km waterside trip through new dockland developments and wild nature to discover a city reinventing itself for a new generation.
Kids rule! Copenhagen is also a great city for family holidays. This year, the city’s science centre, Experimentarium, reopened as one of Europe’s largest and most engaging science experiences. One of the attractions is Europe’s largest cinema for physical exercise. The city is also home to Europe’s second-largest aquarium, Den Blå Planet, which is located by the city’s 5km sandy urban beach. For a more down-to-earth, neighbourhood-y kind of experience, why not check out the district of Nørrebro’s 48-hour spring festival with activities for all ages, 28-30 April 2017.
