Winter in Copenhagen

Copenhagen in winter time

In most cities, the winter months are usually a very quiet period. But Copenhagen is not like most cities, and there are a bunch of activities for visitors. In February there is a light festival where you can experience beautiful, lighted buildings and other light shows.

Swing to cheerful tones during the Winter Jazz festival, eat delicious Danish food, and if you're brave enough - jump in the ocean! Copenhagen is a city you can visit no matter the season.

Tivoli and lights festival

On February 1st, Tivoli opens the gates of an enchanting winter adventure, which you can enjoy until February 24th. Snowmen, glittering ice crystals and hundreds of beautiful lights get everyone in a good mood. And as always, Tivoli offers a number of exciting activities, including ice rink and many carousels. Take a walk in the beautiful winter wonderland and enjoy the spectacular light installations. The park is also full of great restaurants and stalls.

Hot drinks and Danish food

When the winter months get a little colder, there are plenty of warm places to relax. Try a delicious cocoa from Hotel Chocolat on Strøget. How about a cocoa with mocha, mint, chili, or what about the house's own "Made in Copenhagen" from freshly ground cocoa beans? Of course, you can also find the traditional hot chocolate. Do not forget to get some lovely chocolates as a gift to yourself.

There is one thing you have to eat when in town - the Danish sandwiches! In Nyhavn you will find several places that serve traditional sandwiches, topped with delicious toppings and served in an old-fashioned way. If, however, you want a modern dispute, we can recommend Aamann's Deli at Østerport. There they create a modern twist on the Danish classics! Who would think herring and strawberries are a lucky combination?

Sea, sauna and a unique experiences

For a truly unique experience in Copenhagen, take a trip to CopenHot on Refshaleøen. In the "village" of CopenHot you can rent a small sauna or a hot tub onshore! Relax in one of the hot tubs with seawater, or go in one of the saunas and enjoy the breathtaking 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 sea!

When you're done steaming, you can visit one of the many restaurants in Refshaleøen. Here you can taste everything from world-class African cuisine, to burgers and Danish pork roasts.
