Compared to other Scandinavian countries, Denmark has more favourable temperatures that attract tourists from all over the world. Spring brings sunny days and cloudless skies, while summer starts in June and averages temperatures of 20 – 26 degrees Celsius. Autumn is a great time to visit, because the leaves lend a gorgeous golden colour to the city centre. The waters are a lot cooler in autumn, so do not plan on swimming if you visit then. Winter is cold, but not severe. Temperatures are quite likely to drop to the freezing mark, especially in February, but the frost rarely settles in the town.

Tips and Tricks for Visiting Copenhagen

Danes are Generally Happy

You will notice that the Danish people are always happy and welcoming.

Watch for Cyclists

Whether walking, driving, or just crossing the street, be cautious about people riding their bikes. They are fast cyclists who can keep up with most vehicles in the city; and they do not readily stop for pedestrians.

Michelin Star Restaurants are Plentiful

You will find restaurants throughout Copenhagen with high Michelin Star ratings, including Noma and Relae.

Copenhagen is Eco-Friendly

Denmark is a country that is very particular about environmental awareness and responsibility. You will notice that most hotel rooms are eco-friendly, items are made from organic materials, and they practice high environmental standards.

Denmark Does Not Use the Euro

Many UK natives are surprised to find that Denmark uses the Danish krone and not the euro. Unlike many other parts of the world, bank notes in this country have pictures of bridges instead of famous people. When dining at restaurants, you can tip a minimal amount. Rounding up the amount for the tip is customary, while large tips are not usually expected.
