August or September?


I'm either planning on visiting copenhagen from mid to end August or alternatively end of August to early Sept. Is there a significant difference in the weather or number of events? Do the open hours at the museums or other main attraction change? The second timeframe seems to be at the tailend of the summer season, and I wonder if my trip might be better a few weeks earlier.

Thanks for your help.

I would go from mid August - the schools are starting august 15TH and therefore most Danes starts working after their summer break.

Therefore it is less crowded in Tivoli gardens etc. The weather is usually nice in august but it can still rain - come prepared. I would choose august instead of september weather wise.

The museum opening hours should be really fine in mid august. Check out this website www.aok.dk - here you can read all that is going on in Copenhagen.

Have fun!

a very belated thanks for the advice; I'm leaving next week, so sounds like the timing will work out well.
