When to go

 Each season has something to offer visitors. Here's what to know.

 

sun Summer
May through September, the days are still long and the weather usually pleasant. You'll find everyone outside soaking up the sunny summer vibes. July and August are the peak months in Denmark. 

 

winter Winter
Winter is "hygge season." We break out the hot cocoa, candles, and blankets. It's a great time to experience the Danish Christmas season or explore museums, restaurants, and holiday markets.


spring Spring 
Spring in Denmark is a great time to visit. The weather is usually comfortable and is a popular shoulder season. While it can be rainy, Spring often sees less rain than Autumn, making it an ideal shoulder season for savvy tourists. 

 

autumn Autumn 
Autumn in Denmark, the weather can be cooler and less predictable (though you can count on some rain), but the lines to popular attractions are shorter and you can still explore the country on foot or by bike as temperatures remain relatively suitable.
