The iconic colourful houses of Copenhagen’s Nyhavn district make up the images you’re probably most familiar with, but Denmark’s capital city has plenty more to offer. Although it’s at the higher end of the price spectrum, there’s plenty to explore for those on any kind of budget. Tivoli Gardens‘ theme park rides might not be open during the colder months, but the park is beautiful to explore when it’s all lit up with Christmas decorations. Elsewhere, take a trip to the Meatpacking district in the district of Vesterbro for any number of stylish bars, hygge-stuffed restaurants, and plenty of Danish charm. You’ll find at least four Christmas markets each year in Copenhagen, stuffed to the brim with all manner of traditional food and drink. If the cold air gets too much, make like the Nordics do and relax in a hot sauna like the aptly named CopenHot. You might even find that locals offer you a comforting cup of hot chocolate while you’re exploring the city. Rather than assuming anything unscrupulous, accept it with a quick “thank you” as it’s just another example of the Danish hygge culture during winter.

The Christmas Market at Tivoli Garden in Copenhagen is a sight to behold. This winter wonderland has 15 Christmas trees and includes performances by the Tivoli Youth Guard. The market’s dozens of stalls are stocked with religious trinkets, crafts, and seasonal treats like gløgg (raisins, almonds, cinnamon sticks, and cloves steeped in aquavit or schnapps), Julebryg (Christmas beer), and æbleskivers (a donut-like treat dusted with icing, sugar, and a dollop of blackcurrant jam). Trivoli Gardens is also home to one of the best theme park bars in the world, Ølgrotten: a collection of shops and food stalls fashioned after a traditional Danish market.
