The spring exhibitions

Every spring, the Copenhagen museums are filled with new, inspiring exhibitions. Check out the Park Museums for exhibitions about all things art and nature in beautiful park surroundings.

Time on the water

Spring is where people once again migrate to the waters, where you'll feel a vibe not found elsewhere in the city. Discover Copenhagen from the water as captain of your own solar-powered picnic boat or go for a swim in Copenhagen's harbour and canals.

The Deer Park

A short trip north from Copenhagen will take you to Dyrehaven, a wonderful woodland that seems far from city lights and traffic noise. Come spring, and the forest is almost neon green with all the new leaves.

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

The beautiful museum, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, is located 40 kilometres north of Copenhagen just by the sea. It has gained a reputation as a museum in touch with the zeitgeist of the contemporary art world.

Copenhagen food markets

Spring is the time, where it's finally warm enough to dine outside in the city's many food markets. Good, sustainable, organic street food has been gaining ground the last couple of years in Copenhagen, so there's plenty of spots to choose from.
