VisitCopenhagen editors choice for January 2016 winter holiday in Copenhagen

Beat the freezing temperatures, charge your energy levels with Scandinavian mulled wine and savory sandwiches before hitting the irresistible January sales in Copenhagen.

Each month, VisitCopenhagen staff selects top  things to do in Copenhagen.

This is a list of recommendations for January 2016 holidays in Copenhagen.


  1. Parkmuseerne – the cultural sixpack


Parkmuseerne is a museum district in the heart of Copenhagen. Located in and around three beautiful parks you will find six museums: The David Collection, The Cinematheque, The Hirschsprung Collection, SMK (National Gallery of Denmark), Natural History Museum of Denmark and Rosenborg Castle.


Here you can experience the very best that art and nature have to offer. From the Crown Jewels, all kinds of international movies and the world’s biggest meteorite to outstanding Danish and international art.

Visiting the museums also invites you to visit the parks: The King’s Garden, the Botanical Garden, and the Østre Anlæg Park. In the parks you can slow down and take a rest, visit playgrounds and enjoy a light meal, a drink, or a cup of coffee in the surrounding cafés and restaurants.

Everything is within walking distance – and The Parkmuseerne ticket gives you access to all six museums for the price of DKK 195. The ticket is for sale at all ticket offices of the participating museums.

2. Visit Nørrebro- get off the (b)eaten track

Vibrant, colorful, casual and young at heart. Over the last couple of decades Nørrebro has evolved into one of Copenhagen’s hottest quarters with trendy bars and clothing shops next door to dodgy dive bars and cheap kebab places. If you are into small design shops, head for the streets Elmegade or Jægersborggade. And if you need a break, hangout like the locals at Assistens Cemetary.

Sankt Hans Torv square is considered the center of Nørrebro and boasts a wide range of both shops, cafés and restaurants, including the only Thai Michelin restaurant in the world, Kiin Kiin.

3. January = Sales


January in Copenhagen is the best season for making a bargain as most shops are having sales. In small boutiques and major department stores like Illum and Magasin Du Nord, you can enjoy heavy discounts on the things you didn’t get for Christmas.
