One of the few spontaneous and unpredictable things about Denmark is the weather, and it is wise to pack according to the season you intend to visit in.
The weather in Denmark is, as in many other countries, defined by 4 seasons; winter, spring, summer and fall.
Winter: It rarely gets freezing cold during winter, which lasts from November to February, as the country is benefitting from the heat of the Gulfstream resulting in an average temperature of 0.5 degrees Celcius (33 Fahrenheit) from November to February. Expect snow and icy sidewalks, but don’t bring your skiing gear as we have no mountains – just very small hills.
Spring: March to May are the months of spring and this season is quite unpredictable as it can be rather cold or pretty warm. Early spring is usually still affected by the cool winter weather whereas late April and May can be sunny and warm allowing you to wear a t-shirt on a good day. If you are visiting Denmark during spring you should bring an umbrella as chances of rain are quite high.
Summer: Summer is from June throughout August and although it can be a bit rainy in June, the weather in general is quite nice during these months, with temperatures ranging between 20 – 25 degrees Celcius (68 – 77 Fahrenheit) and sometimes even higher. If you want to get the best chances of dry and sunny days you should visit Denmark in the later part of the summer months or in early fall. Don’t forget your swimming suit and your sunscreen lotion as Denmark has several very nice beaches and bathing areas.
Fall: Early fall is usually warm and nice in Denmark and the typical rainy fall weather does not show it’s ugly face until late October and November where you can also experience snow. Bring your umbrella just in case.
