From December to February, Copenhagen experiences it’s coldest weather, with temperatures sometimes dropping below zero degrees (just pack lots of warm layers, drink plenty of hot Danish coffee and you’ll be toasty!). It’s warmest months are July and August, with sunny skies for most of the month and temperatures hitting the twenties. Although sometimes wet, the city is still glorious 12 months of the year, whatever the weather!
Copenhagen is an amazing city. It's packed full of life, colour and stunning sights, plus delicious coffee and pastries can be found literally around every corner. While Copenhagen is known for having a slightly higher price tag than other cities, it's actually really easy to plan an itinerary where spending your krona isn't the basis of everything. With only two days to explore Copenhagen and more than just a few things on our list of must-sees (plus a budget to stick to), making a plan really was necessary.
