The first month of spring is finally here. This is when green buds start appearing on the trees and the locals get a bit ahead of themselves and start sipping rosé in the sun. The craziest might even put on a pair of shorts and catch themselves a cold. We’ve gathered five awesome activities in a mix of outdoor and indoor experiences - just in case the weather isn't on our side, to help you kick in the spring in Copenhagen.

Discover the brush strokes of the late Anna Ancher

One of Denmark’s finest female artist is getting a lot of well-deserved attention this spring. The National Gallery of Denmark has curated a solo retrospective Anna Ancher exhibition, and it’s worth a visit. Anna Ancher was the impressionistic queen of light, making a trip through her impressive catalogue of art perfectly fit for celebrating the arrival of spring. A glance at her work will leave you with a warm, sunny feeling - ready to conquer the brighter months ahead.

Hop in the saddle on a bike route through the outskirts of Copenhagen

The warmer it gets, the more enjoyable biking becomes, and thus March can be the perfect month for a day trip in the saddle. With this 31-kilometre long route, you can bike in the steps of six forgotten giants made out of recycled wood by the Danish artist, Thomas Dambo. An added bonus is that you will get a good glance of the green scenery that lies beyond the city, as you pass through six different municipalities on the outskirts of Copenhagen.

Enjoy a sunny moment at a sidewalk café

A beloved activity of many locals is placing their bums in the seat of a sidewalk café and letting the rays of the sun gently warm their skin while they sip on a glass of something. The closer to summer we get, the harder these seats are to come across, so now is the time to start looking for that perfect sunny spot. With their outdoor seats and extensive wine menu, the restaurant Mêlée, located on a sunny spot on Martensens Allé in beautiful Frederiksberg, is a solid choice for a sunny sidewalk café moment.
