Copenhagen has lots to offer, even during the winter. It’s all about finding experiences that are even more beautiful and better in the dark and cold. Otherwise, you can stay in the warmth and do something indoors where you can sit and enjoy yourself, preferably with a hot drink. How about a concert, a board game or a trip to the sauna?

    Winter also means Christmas, and this is when the capital is decorated with thousands of Christmas lights. These are our suggestions for winter activities in Copenhagen.

    Christmas markets

    Buy your Christmas gifts, while you enjoy a couple of Danish doughnut holes

    When it gets cold and dark in Copenhagen, a Christmas market and a hot glass of glogg is the perfect remedy. Luckily, there are many such markets to explore, and they can be found both indoors and outdoors.

    When walking down Strøget enjoying the Christmas decorations, you should take a detour past the Christmas markets at Kongens Nytorv and Højbro Plads, with their small wooden cabins and Christmas delights. At Nyhavn, you can also find a traditional Christmas market along the quay, where the beautifully-decorated ships enhance the atmosphere. In Christiania, the Christmas market is in Den Grå Hal, where you can find clever and creative Christmas presents. A bit further out on Holmen, the Royal Danish Academy has its Christmas market, where architectural, design and art students sell their own crafts.


    Winter Jazz (Vinterjazz)

    Go to a jazz concert in the darkness of February

    Bebop, children’s jazz, electronic and swing are just some of the genres when Copenhagen’s venues and jazz clubs open the doors to the jazz festival Vinterjazz. Every year in February, you can enjoy lots of jazz music for three weeks at this music festival, which also tries to spread the genre to places where jazz is not normally played. You might even be surprised at what the word jazz can refer to. Some concerts are small and intimate, while others take place on the largest stages in the city.

    Otwarte: It is held in February at varying dates and times.

    Glogg in Hviids Vinstue

    Come to this historic establishment and taste the famous glogg

    Who makes the best glogg in Copenhagen? This is a question that is subject to heated discussions leading up to Christmas, and one of the places that features on most lists is Hviids Vinstue.

You can taste test it yourself in the cosy premises with low ceilings, and you can also buy it by the bottle.

    Lokalizacja: Kongens Nytorv 19, 1050 Copenhagen, Denmark

    Otwarte: Monday to Thursday from 10 am to 1 am, Friday and Saturday until 2 am and Sunday from 10 am to 8 pm.
