When to travel

Denmark is a beautiful country to visit, but it’s always important to be prepared for the weather. The best time to visit is during the summer months, from June to August, when temperatures are mild and pleasant. However, even during these months, it can be a good idea to bring a light jacket or sweater for cooler evenings. In the autumn and winter, temperatures can drop significantly, with rain and occasional snowfall. It’s always a good idea to check the weather forecast before your trip to ensure you are prepared for any conditions.
