Head to the cities famous shopping district located on Stroget. Here you can pick up world famous porcelain produced by The Royal Copenhagen. The city is home to wonderful restaurants with reputations of having the best quality food and wonderful service. One of the most famous Danish restaurants is Noma,
The summer brings festivals like the annual Copenhagen Cooking Festival which takes place at the end of August and is a great time for foodies to travel to the city. The festival is a celebration of food and stalls are set up throughout the city
Fans of Danish Carlsberg beer will be thrilled to know that the brewery hosts tours. You can watch the beer-making process and sample the fare. There is also a beer museum on site (hmmm).
Copenhagen turns into a winter wonderland come December with snow covering the city in a white light. Winter temperatures fall below 0 and stay that way until at least March with the occasional warmer day in between. The Atlantic Gulf Stream makes for warmer summers in the city compared to its northern neighbors. Temperatures generally hover in the low 20s.
When to fly to Copenhagen
December is a busy time of year as tourists fly in looking for a bit of a white Christmas as well as good skiing and winter sports, all of this means ticket prices tend to be fairly high in the month. July and August are also popular months to visit the city.
The cold winter months keep visitors away after December so January through to March and even April is a good time to pick up some flight deals and finally make that sojourn to Copenhagen.
Getting into Copenhagen
Your gateway to Copenhagen will have you landing at Copenhagen International Airport (Kastrup Airport) which is located just 10 minutes outside of the city center. Getting into the city center is an easy process with numerous options available. A fast and inexpensive way to get into the city center is utilizing the city's metro which operates 24 hours a day. There is also direct bus service from the airport to the city center, however this will take you a little longer on the road depending on traffic. A train runs directly from the airport to the city's main bus station and finally you can always grab a taxi outside of the airport terminals.
