Best Time to visit
The best time to visit Denmark is in June, July, and August, when daylight hours are long and temperatures sit comfortably between 15°C and 20°C. However, this is the most intense season in all of Europe, so everything will be crowded in Copenhagen and prices will explode.
This is also the ideal time for hiking. However, the coast can get busy not only with tourists but also with locals that will start enjoying the outdoor activities.
If you plan on going in this period, make sure to plan ahead your transportation and accommodation.
