10 photos that show why Copenhagen winters rock

We’ve had the best winter weather here these last couple of days! We had a bit of a rough start to the new year, with grey, rainy, windy days, but this past week or so, the weather has really picked up nicely and Copenhagen is showing us its prettiest winter side.

The days are icy cold and clear, and a light snow has covered the city like a soft, white blanket. The sun comes out and dips the colorful buildings in the most beautiful light. The air is crisp and invites for long strolls along the lakes, in one of the many parks (Kastellet, Frederiksberg Have), or on the beach.

If only taking the S-train in the snow really was that romantic!

Beaches in the snow are the best

  • Really lovely pictures!

    I recently moved to Copenhagen so I was wondering if any of you experienced expats can recommend a good mobile phone company?


    • Hey Greg

      Welcome to Copenhagen, enjoy it!

      The phone companies vary slightly according to where you live. You can compare the different phone companies on http://www.samlino.dk but the websites in Danish so I hope you’re up for that :)

      Enjoy your time here!

    • Hi Paul, thanks for your comment! That’s a tough one – I think I would recommend going to Nyhavn and the area around it, maybe Amalienborg castle. Then you could also take the super quick boat ride across the harbor to Copenhagen Street Food. Copenhagen is great pretty much all year round – I’d just avoid January and February, those are not fun.

  • I am moving there next summer so hopefully have chance to see this type of weather,last year spent a week there in Oct and it wasn´t that bad at all but now going for many seasons it s going to be great..Cheers!!
    Hej hej!
