Easter 2016

Normally, shops and shopping centres stay closed during the Easter holidays. However, Saturday during Easter is not a holiday, and often shops and shopping centres have extra long hours this particular day. Most restaurants, bars, cafés etc. stay open during Easter, since a lot of people go out in this period. Holidays such as Easter often mean a buzzing nightlife in Copenhagen’s city centre and elsewhere.
