Out of all the Scandinavian countries, Denmark offers the least extreme in regards to climate. Denmark has a temperate climate and offers four distinct seasons of spring, summer, fall and winter. The country has a prevailing western wind, and the west coast of Denmark receives more rainfall than the rest of the country (with an average rainfall of 24 inches per year).

The best time to visit is May through August when the days are at their longest, temperatures are relatively warm and the landscape is blossoming. Bear in mind, though, that the summer months can get uncomfortably crowded. Fall runs from September to November and tends to be rainy and cloudy. The winter months of December to March are normally cold, with frost and snow. Copenhagen attracts visitors all year and you should have no problem finding plenty going on throughout the year in the city.
