- Times to Travel: Denmark is very manageable at anytime of the year. High temperatures in summer reach into the low 70's, with cooler mornings. Winter brings much colder days, but temperatures seldom fall below the low 30's.
Denmark's geographical position affects winter daylight hours, as the sun rises by 8 AM, and sets no later than 4 PM. Summer days are longer as sunrise occurs before 4 AM, with sunset near 10 PM.
Even though crowds are heavy and attraction lines long, most travelers seem to agree that June through August are the best months to visit.
