Most of the locals in Copenhagen say that springtime is the best time to visit. The bright, crisp and sunny months when the flowers begin to peep out from Copenhagen’s green spaces show the Danish capital at its best. Winter, of course, is a beautifully cosy time to visit the city and wander its Christmas markets and twinkly lights, but the bone-chilling cold can make it a chore. Autumn in Copenhagen, however, provides the opportunity to tick off numerous festivals themed on food, yoga, world music and film. With flight time a little over six hours from Dubai, Copenhagen is easily within reach for those who like to add some culture to their urban adventure.
Copenhagen is all about the city centre (but don’t rule out a trip to the MOMA art museum on the outskirts) so you need a pleasant base with an A1 location for all the exploring you’re going to do. The Skt. Petri Hotel right opposite the old Copenhagen University in the creative Latin Quarter is hard to beat for its location – and its style.
