What: Nordic Adventure Film Festival

Where: Copenhagen

When: 30th November – 3rd December

If you love being in the outdoors; climbing, surfing, skiing, snowboarding, hangliding, jumping out of planes – anything that involves the thrill of being outdoors, the wind in your hair, and with a dash of adventure thrown in for good measure, then you need to check this out while you’re in Copenhagen. This film festival features films made by adventure enthusiasts and will be informative and exciting from start to finish.

What: Christmas at Tivoli

Where: Tivoli Gardens

When: 17 November to 31 December

It’s our favourite time of year and if you’re in Copenhagen from mid November onwards, then spending a day at Tivoli will not be a wasted day. Christmas lights, stalls selling Gløgg (the Danish version of mulled wine), æbleskiver (similar to donuts) and ‘stocking fillers’ you might like to take home for your families. Definitely worth a visit to help you get into the Christmas spirit.

What: Santa Lucia Kayak Parade

Where: Copenhagen’s Canals – starting from

When: 13 December

If you are in Copenhagen on the 13 December, this is a local event not to be missed. Locals and (experienced) tourists alike, don their Christmas outfits, decorate their kayak with fairy lights and then kayak through the canals of Copenhagen. Christmas songs will be sung and mulled wine / gløgg will be drunk. Wrap up warm and bring your festive spirit, for this is a super way to spend a few hours!

What: Ice Skating

Where: Various locations in Copenhagen

When: Throughout December

It’s the stuff Christmas films are made of. You and your loved one, wrapped up super warm, donning the skates and zooming around an outdoor ice rink all in the name of Christmas. It’s such a Christmassy thing to do. There are several rinks located around the city, click the link above to see the map and find the once closest to you! 

What: Christmas Markets

Where: Various locations in Copenhagen

When: Throughout December

Christmas markets in Copenhagen are EVERYWHERE. Wandering this city’s magical streets in December is something everybody should do at least once in their lifetime. No country does Christmas quite like Denmark and Copenhagen’s Christmas markets are a huge part of the charm here.


What: Tivoli Gardens Closes

Where: Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen

When: 1st January 2024

On the 1st January 2024, Tivoli Gardens will close its doors for the winter season. They spend this time preparing the park for reopening for the very busy spring and summer seasons.

What: Copenhagen Fashion Week
