General information

All-year round destination

Weatherwise, Denmark is an all-year-round getaway, with four distinct seasons. Cultural events are spread throughout the year with things to warm you in winter and refresh you in summer.

Summer 

The summers are warm and everyone comes outside to enjoy the long evenings. The sun doesn’t set until after 10pm in June. Danish school children return to school in August, so late August is a great time to visit for good weather and less crowds.

Winter

Though the days are shorter in the winter, the country is often covered with snow, so there are loads of opportunities to enjoy a natural winter wonderland. During the winter, some attractions and services close. For example, Tivoli Gardens is closed from the middle of September to the middle of April. It opens with gusto, however, over Christmas (except 24 and 25 December) and Halloween.
