Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and while many people go there for that reason, there are so many other reasons to visit. The modern twists have created a new level of enthusiasm within this magnificent city, yet there is still the history that has turned this area into the fabulous destination that it is today.
While there is a plethora of things to see and do in Copenhagen, the list of must-see destinations and attractions are more manageable for those who are only there for a week. A few of the sights that everyone must see include Tivoli Gardens, Strøget, Nationalmuseet, the Botanical Garden, and the Church of Our Savior. Oh, and don’t forget to find the Little Mermaid Statue as you are wandering around!
The weather in Copenhagen is comparable to other parts of the world with four seasons being prevalent throughout the year. The coldest month is usually February, while the warmest temperatures occur during the months of July and August.
There isn’t really a better time to visit Copenhagen during the year, but most people choose to go when it is warmer. However, travelers must be aware that the streets and the beaches will be more crowded during that time of the year, because everyone is out enjoying the sunshine and warmer temperatures. Those who choose to visit during the winter months will find that they need to dress for the cooler temps, but they will still have plenty to do. Some people think that the best time to visit this city is during December when all the Christmas markets are open.
