Hoppy times: Copenhagen during Easter

Copenhagen is a perfect getaway destination all year around. However, especially in spring, when the winter months are almost out of sight, the city bristles with new found energy. Let us show you what fun things you can do during the upcoming Easter break.

Tivoli Gardens

The Tivoli Gardens are an iconic and popular attraction in Copenhagen. This must-see site will be at its epitome in spring: thousands of blooming flowers, fun rides and beautiful greenery right in the heart of Copenhagen.

No trip to Copenhagen is complete without paying a visit to this amusement park. Find from the 31st of March until the 10th of April sparkling easter decorations along with special spring menus for a delicious easter lunch at one of the many restaurants. During the opening night, the Tivoli gardens will light the skies up with beautiful fireworks. 

Spend the public holiday greeting Easter lambs and hunting for eggs while surrounded by Tivoli’s famous pleasure gardens. It’s the perfect way to spend the holidays with your family and friends!

The Tube

This newly opened and unique attraction in Copenhagen puts all your senses to the test. Walk through a vortex, feel submerged underwater, vanish among a myriad of balls, and explore never ending rooms full of illusions and immersive experiences.

With many photo opportunities and your special The Tube photo pass, you will be able to capture this mind bending journey. The perfect souvenir or social media post for your trip to Copenhagen.

Right in the city centre, across from the Tivoli, The Tube guarantees a fun and unlike any other activity for groups of all ages. 

Nyhavn & Canal Tour

As a former Viking fishing settlement, traces of the Norse explorers can still be found here, which makes a canal tour a must on your trip to the Danish capital.

Explore the city by water and start the tour from Copenhagen’s famous canal district Nyhavn, or “New Harbour” in English. It’s full of colourful and historic architecture and harbours not only a lot of sailing ships, but also several of the city’s best bars and restaurants.
Therefore, before exploring the best sights and attractions from the water, enjoy your Easter holiday with delicious food and drinks and explore the vibrant canal district. 

Feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face on this guided canal tour. You’ll be able to admire ancient castles, the famous Mermaid statue and Copenhagen’s idyllic waterways and many more landmarks.

Easter lunch - Påskefrokost

Spend your Easter holiday like the Danish with a local Easter lunch, or “Påskefrokost. It is usually celebrated on Easter Sunday with family and friends. It’s a merge of lunch and dinner and can last a whole afternoon.

Påskefrokost usually centers around the Danish trademark rye bread. It will be served with boiled eggs, breaded fried fish, different types of herring and cheese, cress, cold cuts and liver paste. 

As for drinks, the Danish Easter lunch is customarily accompanied by flavoured spirits and cheerful cries of “Skål” (cheers). Furthermore, much like at Christmas, a special Easter beer or “Påskebryg“ is served. 

Sounds like a fun and delicious Easter Sunday, right? Enjoy this Danish tradition at the Kronborg restaurant, which offers tasty traditional dishes and special Easter Platters and Menus.

Bike tour

Spring is the perfect time to explore Copenhagen on two wheels. Get on the saddle and bike away the chocolate Easter eggs and explore Denmark's capital. Either rent a bike yourself and see the city at your own pace or join a guided bike tour.
