Why visit Copenhagen in winter
Winter in Copenhagen offers plenty of “hygge” activities and attractions. During Christmas time (between mid-November until end of December) it’s hard not to get in the Christmas spirit as Copenhagen’s streets are lit with Christmas lights and holiday notes are playing everywhere.
In Copenhagen, festivals are taking place all year round, and there are plenty of events to choose from during the winter. Two of the most popular events are the Winter Jazz Festival and the Copenhagen Light Festival which lights up the city through breathtaking installations every February.
Copenhagen is a great place to go shopping and it is even better in the winter when all the sales start. In general, sales start right after Christmas and last for a month or two. You can go for high-end fashion or Danish design in the historic centre or explore handcrafted and independent local stores in one of Copenhagen’s neighbourhoods such as Vesterbro or Nørrebro.
