POCKET GUIDE TO DENMARK
As one of the world’s greenest, cleanest, most sustainable capital cities, it’s not hard to see why Copenhagen regularly holds a prime position on world liveability lists. The bustling capital mixes royal history (Denmark’s monarchy is the oldest in the world), modern architecture and culture with a powerhouse culinary scene boasting 15 Michelin-starred restaurants including the world-famous Noma. A holiday in Copenhagen isn’t complete without a trip to the renowned Tivoli Gardens amusement park, a must for all visitors.
OROKO Top Tip
During your luxury holiday to Denmark, we highly recommend availing of a private tour of Copenhagen. With your expert guide, explore some of the local hotspots such as the famous, colourful townhouse lined Nyhavn Harbourfront, Amalienborg Palace (home of the current royal family), Christiansborg Palace (the seat of parliament) as well as the Denmark Design Museum and the National Museum. Afterwards, head to the Latin Quarter to refuel at one of the many cafes before indulging in some retail therapy.
Best Time to Visit
Denmark is a year-round destination but when you visit depends on what you want to do whilst you’re there. It’s more temperate than the rest of Scandinavia and is afforded a milder climate because of its more southerly latitudes. However, the best time to visit is between May and August, when the days are long and warm. Winter (November – February) is the perfect time to truly enjoy and embrace ‘hygge’ season, that one-of-a-kind Scandinavian cosiness that can’t be experienced anywhere else.
Christmas is a big tradition in Denmark, with almost everyone celebrating it. Every town, city and village are decked out with lights and decorations, and most will put up huge Christmas trees too. Seasonal markets open in late November, the most famed of which is in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. New Year is also an unmissable event, particularly at Amalienborg Square where there is an impressive fireworks display. Vinterjazz, a country-wide jazz festival in February, is also worth attending.
