The Danish winter wonderland

Why visit Denmark in Winter?

Winter in Denmark is peak hygge season: a time for Christmas cheer and great company - and don't forget Tivoli's new winter season. 

Embrace the Danish Winter like the Danes

“You’ve reach Denmark. We’re not here right now, but leave a message and we’ll get back to you in March...” KIDDING! (Sort of.) To be honest, you’re visiting us in our peak hibernation period. But don’t worry, here are all the insider tips you’ll need for things to do in Denmark in winter.

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.
