Copenhagen was long the center of the Danish Empire; historical palaces, monuments and relics dot the rich-in-culture city. Modern Copenhagen vibes on an artsy, contemporary note with new-age architecture, high-tech transit system and vibrant streets. Though starkly different and often juxtaposing each other, the old and the new come together in union.

The city is a sun bowl – it gets 17 hours of sun during its pleasant summers. In its harsh winter, streets light up the dull atmosphere and that is why, even below freezing point, the streets are always busy. Filled with remarkable places to see and a plethora of activities to do, Copenhagen should make it to every traveller’s wander-list. Go through our brief guide to get ready for your next adventure!

Best time to travel to Copenhagen

Places To See: Copenhagen In Denmark

Undoubtedly, your best bet at  experiencing Copenhagen, and the whole of Denmark, is during peak summer. These are the weeks that bask in the sun for 17 hours. However, the crowd might be overwhelming. 

This is why we recommend visiting the city in April, May or September. These ‘free’ months also mean cheaper hotel rooms and such. 

If you love Christmas-y streets and cities, December should be your go-to month. The entire city lights up with Christmas markets, wonderful snow and cheerful residents.
