Experience Spring in Copenhagen

Welcome to another fantastic season in the world's best city! We thing there is something very special about spring and life that slowly, but surely, fills the streets following the winder.

Did you know that Copenhagen has been voted the world's best city to visit in 2019 by Lonely Planet? In addition, Copenhagen has been nicknamed "the Capital of Cool", which we think is a very appropriate description of the capital.

In honor of the city's "Cool" reputation, we've compiled many cool tips for what to do in the capital in the spring months.

Flowers in BLoom

The most wonderful event of the spring and a must see is the blossoming of the beautiful cherry trees in Copenhagen. The beautiful and magical trees can be found in several places in the capital, including Bispebjerg Cemetery, the Botanical Gardens, Langelinie, or the Superkilen from which the picture is.

At the end of April, Langelinie Park is filled with people from near and far who have come to see the beautiful trees and to participate in the Copenhagen Sakura Festival, which runs from April 27-28.

Eating

When you arrive in Copenhagen, you will very quickly discover an endless supply of places to eat. It's hard to choose! We therefore have a few suggestions for you.

In Nyhavn you can enjoy a delicious Danish sandwich or two at the restaurant Aamanns. Or you can go to the cool and popular Reffen Street Food market which is located just outside the city center - opens on March 30.

Inside Tivoli you will find the restaurant Nimb - afternoon tea, tasty sandwiches and a gastronomic French cuisine!

In Copenhagen's trendy meatpacking district, or "Kødbyen" as the Danes call it, you will definitely find something you like! For example, visit the place Mother - fantastic pizza in a real Italian way!

GOBOAT

If there is one thing we cannot get enough of, then there are boat trips! And that is exactly why we need to tell you about this activity that suits you whether you are traveling with your loved ones, your group of friends or your family.

At GOBOAT you can rent your own battery-powered boat that seats up to eight people. Jump aboard and cruise around Copenhagen's cozy canals. You get to see a lot of Copenhagen from the sea, and along the way you can see both spectacular, new buildings and architecture and several historical landmarks.

If you want to make the trip extra special, you can pack a picnic basket, full of good food and drink. "Set anchor" and enjoy lunch in the boat.

If you travel with children, they can play "rattle pirates" along the way. Then the children fish scrap that does not belong in nature, and as a reward they get an ice cream when they land. Mom and Dad can enjoy the peace and quiet and the kids stay active - win, win!

Ready, Set, Jump in the Sea!

Outdoor pools and saunas have long taken Scandinavia by storm and continue to bevery popular.

Take a trip to CopenHot on Refshale Island where you can rent a small sauna or hot tub on land! There is little that beats this experience - the warmth, the delicious seawater and the amazing sea views.

If you want something even more unique, you can rent a floating hot tub that will take you on a small cruise. And if you are extra daring, jump into the cold seawater when you have gathered enough courage. If you are reluctant to jump out in the winter, try now this spring when the water is a few degrees warmer. Remember to book a place in advance at CopenHot!

When you're done steaming, you can visit one of the many eateries on Refshaleøen. Here you can taste everything from world-class African cuisine, to burger with the Danish pork roast.

City Sighseeing by Kayak

If you want to see Copenhagen in an active, different and peaceful way, you have to go to Kayak Republic to get a kayak rental. Here you can rent both a single kayak or one with space for two people.

Paddle around the canals on your own and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. You are provided with a map and a recommended route, but you freely choose where you want to paddle.

When you're done, head to the Kayak Bar for lunch or a drink - the perfect ending to a sporty and content day in the world's best city!

Zoo

Spring means sunshine, flowers in all the colors of the rainbow, green trees, shorts and sunglasses. In the Zoo, it means births and babies. This is a very nice and exciting time to spend in the park for both children and adults.

Have you ever been close to a panda? In the zoo in Copenhagen, you can experience these bamboo-eating bears up close. By the way, did you also know that the Australian wombat lays square poop? Get close to both vombat and Tasmanian purse devil in the zoo.

This Easter, Dinozoo opens, where 20 giant dinosaurs in their original size will give the smallest dino lovers a great experience. Dinozoo is part of the Zoo all summer long.
