There is no better place than Copenhagen to truly experience the famous Danish concept of comfort and coziness, defined as ‘hygge’. Any time is a good time to find ‘hygge’. From June – August, the weather is warm and sunny, and average temperatures are around 65 – 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The city hosts events such as Copenhagen Jazz Festival, the Roskilde Festival of music and arts, and Strøm festival of electronic music during this time. Remember to pack some warm clothes even during a summer visit as you may experience a chilly breeze on most evenings. From September – November, average temperatures dip to around 45 degrees Fahrenheit, and the city is covered in beautiful fall foliage. Copenhagen winters are bitterly cold, with average temperatures dipping to as low as 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring months from March – May see their share of festive events such as the Beer Festival, Puppet Festival, and the Copenhagen Carnival. With cool weather, fewer crowds, and cheaper airfares and room rates, spring is one of the best times to visit.

How to get around in Copenhagen?

Biking

Biking is a popular way to get around in Copenhagen. Bycyklen (The City Bike), the city’s official bike share program features over 2,000 intelligent electric bikes at over 100 Bycyklen stations. If you opt for a Pay as You Go plan, for 30 kr an hour you can enjoy unlimited usage of all Bycyklen stations in the city.

Public transportation

Copenhagen’s public transportation system includes buses, trains, the subway system (Metro), and a commuter light-rail system (S-Tog). Most buses leave from the Rådhuspladsen (City Hall square) in the middle of the city. The Metro lines run east-west and operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Trains arrive every 2 – 3 minutes during rush hour, and every 15 minutes at night. The S-Tog connects Central Station to the city suburbs. You can transfer from a bus or Metro line to an S-Tog line.
