Culture People in Denmark can be quite reserved to others they do not know. Often it takes time to get to know someone here. But a smile and maybe some nice words about Copenhagen most people will appreciate.

Weatherforecast:

http://www.dmi.dk/eng/index/forecasts.htm

Official we say it is winter December-February, spring March-May, summer June-August and autumn September-Novmber. But the weather in Denmark is difficult to rely on, and a popular topic to talk about. In winter we normally have some weeks or months of snow and ice, in summer if we are lucky we have sunny days around 20-30 degree Celsius.

Festivals and Events The holidays in Denmark mostly follow christian celebrations. A non-christian tradition that survived is the midsummercelebration with bonfires in June, but this is not a holiday. Official holidays: http://www.visitdenmark.dk/uk/en-gb/menu/turist/turistinformation/fakta-az/helligedage.htm Schools also have holidays in the summer around July, one week in October and one week in February. Copenhagen will be filled with different kind of musicfestivals and events through the summer. Examples are jazzfestival. concerts in Tivoli, Nemoland, Ofelia Beach, Stella Polaris, open-air cinema arranged by zulu sommerbio, Copenhagen cooking, Smag verden.

Transportation If you arrive at Copenhagen Airport, you can get to the city center by bus, train or metro. If you take the train to the Central Station, or metro to Noerreport ( the fastest solution, around 15 minutes),there will be connections to other parts of the city with bus or s-train. The cheapest 2-zone-ticket cost 24dkr, and then you pay extra for each zone. From Airport to the city are 3 zones. If you go for more than one trip in the city, often it is better to buy a 10-trip-card (20 zones), it is around half price. For a longer stay, especially in summertime, buying a cheap bike can be a good choiche. Copenhagen want to be a good city for bikes, and it is very popular to bike.
