The high season of hygge
Danish winters are known to be long and dark, and so the Danes fight the darkness with their best weapon: hygge, and the millions of candles that go with it.
Winter in Denmark is peak hygge season: a time for Christmas cheer and great company - and don't forget Tivoli's new winter season.
New Year's Eve in Denmark is one big party! Many Danes see in the new year with friends and it's not uncommon to see fireworks whizzing around on the streets! At 6pm, people gather by the TV to hear the Queen's New Year's speech. After that, it's out with the old and in with the new!
It might be cold and dark outside, but in Denmark we know how to host events that'll keep us warm and light up the long nights.
One of the main reasons we love the winter in Denmark is the snow - and luckily so does Instagram! Here's some of our favourite snowy pics of the Danish winter wonderland.
