Events Guide Copenhagen
Events Guide Copenhagen
Copenhagen started life as a little Viking fishing village in the 10th century. A mere 500 years later, it became the nation’s capital. After another two hundred years, it confirmed its status as the region’s biggest kid on the block.
The Vikings might not have planned for their little village of Copenhagen to be a major settlement in this 21st century. But here we are. It’s a hub for international business, culture, tourism, and… corporate events!
The city has a population of 794,000. The greater urban area has a population of 1,331,00, and the metropolitan area brings it up to a grand total of 2,057,000! Although Denmark is in the EU, they don’t use the Euro. The use the Danish Krone (DKK).
When to Visit Copenhagen
Like most cities in Europe, Copenhagen is busiest in the summer. Summer tends to fall from June through August. And for good reasons, there is a whole host of events and festivals.
Despite the water being quite chilly, the beach is hugely popular with locals. The days are long here, so there is plenty of vitamin D to go around. The weather begins to dip early in September. It reaches freezing point by the middle of November.
Be wary, though. Hotel prices are known to rise during the high season. That’s why we’d say that spring might be the best time to go. Hotel prices are lower, and it’s quieter.
Spring in Copenhagen lasts from March through May. Spring is a good time to be in Copenhagen. The days start to grow again, and the cities outdoor attractions begin to blossom. The weather stays chilly into March with not an inch of humidity. But nature is persistent. By the end of the month, the warmth picks up in April.
And if you’re into low prices and quiet streets, why not go in winter? Most places are still open, albeit at reduced opening hours. And what’s more, the cold and the snow – when it shows – is quite becoming in the city!
By the dead of winter, the temperature tends to hover around freezing point. Which isn’t so cold, considering its northerly latitude. The wind is killer, though. Daylight is short-lived, with the sun only up from 8.30 am to as little as 3.30 pm. February is the coldest month.
Getting Around Copenhagen
You will probably fly into Copenhagen International (CPH). You can get there from most major European and international airports. From London, it’s only an hour and a half away. And if you pick the right time, you can fly there from €20!
There are plenty of buses that will take you to the city from the airport. If you’re going to the city centre, then your best option is the 5A bus. You can get a train from Terminal 3. In 15 minutes, you’ll be at Central Station, known locally as Københavns Hovedbanegården. It costs just 36DKK (€4.84!).
A treat in Copenhagen is having a good cycle. There are dedicated cycle lanes, and the city is relatively small. So it’s safe and super smooth. If you have the time, Copenhagen is also a great city to discover on foot.
Taxis are a good way to get about the city. They are easily flagged down, and almost all of them accept card payments. Alternatively, you could download GoMore if you prefer a ridesharing option.
As for public transport, you’ve got the metro, buses, and S-trains. The metro has three lines, and the best thing about it is it operates 24/7! So if you happen to stay out dancing, you can still get home on the cheap. It will take you to all the areas you’ll want to get to, like Nørrebrø, Vesterbrø, Frederiksberg, and Osterbrø.
The S-trains keep the suburbs connected to the city. But it’s unlikely you’ll need to use them unless it’s to the airport. Everything you’ll need for a corporate event is most definitely in the city!
If you fancy doing some travelling further afield to different parts of Denmark or even to Sweden, you can get a Flixbus or Nettbuss for a cheeky day trip.
What to Eat in Copenhagen
Danish cuisine – true to its roots – is peasant food at heart. Like many of their northern European neighbours, Danish cuisine was limited by the resources they had to hand up until the industrial revolution. Danish dinner tables saw bread, porridge, and vegetables, for the most part.
The Danes had a knack for preserving fish and meat for the long winters. The general consensus is that Danish cuisine started to flourish in the 1800s. This time coincided with the advent of the wood-burning stove and ramping up of meat production.
It’s been through some significant changes in the last century. From the 1960s, the country was invaded by frozen and fast food. And with more Danish people leaving for fields afar and folk migrating to this great place came new ideas about food, pallets, and market demands.
In some culinary circles, there was a fear that traditional Danish crops would be lost. Enter Claus Meyer and his distinguished comrades, who wrote the New Nordic Manifesto in 2004. It’s a commitment to use both local and seasonal ingredients. Since then, Danish cuisine has flourished. It is refined, simple, and accessible.
So what food should you try then? Let’s start with the national dish, stegt flæsk med persillesauce. Put simply, it’s fried pork belly with boiled potatoes and a parsley bechamel sauce. Delicious.
An amusing tradition is valgflæsk, or, election meat. It’s crispy pork eaten on election night. It’s a joke about promises made by politicians on the campaign trail.
Continuing with the pork theme, flæskesteg is a Christmas meal. It’s traditional to serve a big piece of roast pork – heavy on the cracking – with boiled potatoes and red cabbage.
Like their Scandanavian neighbours, they’re very into their meatballs. It’s served with rye bread or potatoes. They know it as frikadeller, and is distinctive thanks to its spices.
Now, how about something sweet? Hindbærsnitte is a raspberry slice that at first glance, resembles a pop tart. It comes in many guises and is very popular.
Indre By – or, Inner City – is Copenhagen’s historic centre. It’s a random and unruly pattern of cobblestone streets. Exploring the asymmetric streets, you’ll find lots of charming squares and fascinating museums to keep you occupied. So it’s a strong candidate for one of the best areas to stay in!
Within Indre By, you have the Latin Quarter. It gets its name from its history as the old university area when Latin was still the language of academia.
Nørrebro is just to the north of Indre By. It’s a neighbourhood with infectious energy. It’s fun, diverse, multicultural, and draws in an eclectic crowd. It’s well known for its superb restaurants, homely cafes, and loads of independent and boutique shops.
To the west of Indre By, you’ve got Vesterbro. It’s amazingly cool, even by Copenhagen’s cool standards. Historically, Vesterbro was known as a working-class area. But over time, it’s developed into an unequivocal hippest neighbourhood in the city. Every corner has art galleries, organic restaurants, tattoo studios and trendy hostels.
Locals and tourists love hanging out here for the awesome bars, restaurants, and shops. But it still has grit with places like the Red Light District and other edgy spots.
Copenhagen is an excellent place for tourists to come and indulge in Nordic fantasies. But we really love how liveable it is. It’s easy to go there and blend in like a native.
This combination of tourist wonderland and modern, modest, powerhouse, makes it a really cool place to hold your corporate events.
If you’re enamoured as we are, you’re probably thinking about where it is best to stay. We can help you with that. Check out our guide to Copenhagen’s best hotels and take your enamourment to the next level.
