Spring in Denmark usually brings bright sunlight and cloudless skies

The best time to visit Denmark is during the summer months of June, July and August, when the climate is warm and the blossoming landscape at its prettiest, and when travel season is in full swing

Autumn can also be a good time to visit, with the falling leaves providing a gorgeous golden show – though bear in mind that the coastal waters can get chilly as early as September, and that most sights and attractions maintain reduced hours outside of high season, from mid-September onwards.

Denmark’s winters are decidedly less severe than those of its northerly Scandinavian neighbours.
