Can be glorious bright and clear, sunny but not warm = fresh.
There is also about a 50% chance of rain each day on average.

How your weekend in Copenhagen can go down
Stay at one of the romantic and chic design & boutique hotels in the charming Danish capital where new and old meets in a refreshingly and tasteful - Scandinavian - way. For something a bit quirky consider the Hotel Fox Copenhagen.

Visit the city’s art galleries and museums and go shopping on “Strøget” and in the less mainstream, cobbled side streets. Promenade along the Copenhagen waterfront and greet The Little Mermaid or take a leisurely walk in the lovely “Kongens Have” and lunch at the in vogue organic restaurant “Geranium” at the far end of the park. The list goes on and on...

A romantic night out in Copenhagen is easily planned too: Enjoy a luscious dinner for two at one of the city’s nine twelve Michelin restaurants and perhaps end up your romantic evening with a visit to the beautiful old Royal Theatre OR its “baby sister” on the other side of the waterfront – the new Opera House easily reached by water bus!

The number of attractions and sights in Copenhagen are endless – and easy to get to as well - and your first romantic evening in Copenhagen does not have to be the last. Nyhavn is always a cosy and intimate place, with picturesque old warehouses and pleasure boats in the canal and the salty smell of Øresund sound nearby. Take a short stroll through this area and you are guaranteed to find several appetizing lunch and dinner offers in the many cafés and restaurants along the quayside.

If you have a passion for exploring new sights, attractions and culinary offers too, then a visit to the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek located next to the famous Tivoli Gardens and the City Hall Square is a “must”. With over 10.000 works of art, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek offers an impressive collection of antique and modern sculptures and paintings. It also features one of the city’s most romantic cafés; set on a balcony overlooking the glass roofed palm gardens, complete with neo-classical statues and fountains, this teashop perfectly reflects the ambience of the venue and the French inspired dishes are all home made and carefully are prepared as you wait. Copenhagen is also a great city for cyclists.

A romantic weekend break in Copenhagen can be designed entirely after your own formula. No matter what you choose, the vast number of hotels, restaurants, hip bars and cosy cafés will guarantee that your Valentine’s break to the charming capital will be a great success! AND no matter where you choose to stay in the city, the nearest train or Metro station is very likely to be a maximum of 10 minutes walk away, so there is easy access to and from the Copenhagen Airport too. The airport transfer (Metro. rail or bus) is refreshingly priced at normal transport rates so will only cost a few pound.
