Best Time To Visit Copenhagen - Time To Go To Copenhagen

The climate in Copenhagen is humid and the weather conditions largely depend on the oceanic winds. The city attracts visitors annually with summer being the peak season with a number of popular events and festivals. For those looking to put a little less burden on their pocket can visit the city during Spring. Autumn and Winter months see the city go into hibernation, except the month of December which is the time for Christmas holiday celebrations.

  • Summers (June-August) – The Copenhagen summers are comfortable with the temperatures ranging between 13 to 20 degrees Celsius. The summer season also sees the highest amount of rainfall with the precipitation levels being around 45 to 56mm. The summer time sees the highest number of crowds and everything from hotels to flights are expensive. The summer season also hosts many festivals like the Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Distortion and Roskilde Festival.
  • Fall (September-November) – The Copenhagen fall is beautiful and vibrant. The leaves change colour that adds a rustic ambience to the city’s atmosphere. The temperature starts falling and can dip anywhere between 17 and 3 degrees Celsius. Warm clothing is a necessity during this time of the year. The summer crowds have left the city as fall arrives and the city is less crowded. The prices are low as the peak summer season is over and the city prepares for the offseason. Some famous festivals like the Copenhagen Blues Festival take place around this time of the year.
  • Winters (December-February) –  The winters in Copenhagen are very cold and warm clothing is a necessity during this time of the year. Winters are considered as the offseason in Copenhagen and the prices are cheap during this time of the year. Most of the attractions are closed as the locals leave the city to enjoy warmer climates. December, however, is lively as the Christmas celebrations are in full swing. The winter temperatures fluctuate between -2 and 5 degrees Celsius.
  • Spring – (March-May) – The weather during the springtime is pleasant but not as warm as the summers. The streets are empty during this time of the year as the summer crowds haven’t arrived yet and the prices of hotels and flights are still cheap. Various festivals like the Copenhagen Beer Festival and the Copenhagen Carnival take place during this time of the year. The temperatures during early spring can remain fairly low (between -1 to 5 degrees Celsius) and rise between 7 to 15 degrees Celsius as summer approaches.

The best time to visit Copenhagen is during the Spring and Summer, depending on one’s personal preferences. The summer time brings warm temperature, a number of popular, large-scale events and lively streets while the spring season brings pleasant weather, fewer crowds and lower rates.
