Copenhagen Climate & Weather

Copenhagen Climate and Weather

The weather in Copenhagen is mild through all the four seasons. Summers bring temperatures averaging around 68°F (20°C), while in mid-winter temperatures hover just above or below zero. The hottest month is July and the coldest month is February. Rainfall is moderate too, but spread throughout the year, so showers are possible in any season. Grey skies are the norm rather than the exception in Copenhagen. There is not a great variation in temperatures between night and day in the city. Winter days get far fewer daylight hours than summer days, which are long. Early summer is the best time to visit Denmark; the month of June is particularly lovely because that is when the days are longest and the weather at its most pleasant. Throughout summer the weather in Copenhagen is great and it is during the summer months that most of the city's festivals and events take place. Some attractions close for winter, or reduce their opening hours, but the city is charming over the festive season which is another special time to visit Copenhagen.
