Useful Information for your Stay in Copenhagen

By Chris Boyle

WHEN BEST TO GO

Radisonblue

Summer in Copenhagen is usually fairly warm, with temperatures averaging 20°C and 18 hours of daylight, making it the best time to visit the Danish capital.

Autumn and winter see the nights drawing in quickly and locals often prefer to stay at home and enjoy hygge (spending quality time with friends and loved ones). Springtime can be extremely pleasant, with energetic Copenhageners venturing out again after the dark days of winter.

LOCAL CUSTOMS

Generally regarded as one of the cleanest cities in the world, Copenhageners are generally a happy bunch, and why shouldn’t they be? The city regularly tops lists of the cities with the best quality of life and is one of the world’s most environmentally friendly capitals.

ATTIRE

Typical western dress is common in Copenhagen; indeed locals tend to dress down a little on a night out. Check dress codes with your concierge before heading out.
