Averages for Copenhagen in July

July brings with it the warmest weather of the year and the height of the tourist season to Copenhagen. With the warmer weather, visitors are able to not only enjoy the sights on land, but also take full advantage of the numerous water sports offered in the area. Visitors will have to wait a little bit as the more popular sites and restaurants will be crowded, but now is the time to go if you want to be able to see everything that the region has to offer.

While this month is actually tied with August for the warmest average afternoon highs, the low temperatures are the warmest the city will see all year. Throughout the evening, the mercury will drop to an average low of 13°C (55°F). While still cool enough for a light jacket, temperatures are much warmer than they are during the winter months. In the afternoon, highs will climb to an average of 21°C (70°F). The average daily temperature is a pleasant 17°C (63°F).

Now is also the time to hit the beach and enjoy the average of 13 hours of sunshine per day. The water is also now warm enough to enjoy as temperatures will average 18°C (64°F). While not as warm as some of the other European waters, at least visitors can enjoy surfing and other water sports for a short amount of time.

Rainfall amounts do remain high and will drive visitors indoors for a short amount of time. Overall, the region will experience an average of 60mm of precipitation throughout the month. This rain will fall over an average of 15 days. As a result, it is important to bring some raingear in order to stay dry while out exploring the city. Overall, however, the rain is generally short-lived and won’t ruin an entire day’s activities, but still check the extended forecast

Where To Stay

For those who have points to spend or just like staying with a known hotel chain, the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers is an excellent choice. Known as one of Denmark’s most sustainable hotels, guests may choose from a wide array of spacious room that offer fantastic views. This is the perfect spot for business travellers or those looking to take a quick holiday. Be sure to check out the unique indoor forest atrium with more than 60 trees and 4,500 plants.

If you are looking for something more intimate than a chain hotel, be sure to check out the Anderson Boutique Hotel. Located in the heart of Copenhagen, this is the perfect choice for a July holiday. A two-time winner in the World Luxury Hotel Awards “country” division, you cannot go wrong with this choice. Guests can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine each evening, as well as free Wi-Fi, a breakfast buffet, bike rentals and more.

Enjoy fantastic views of the Copenhagen harbour canal while staying at the 5-star Copenhagen Marriott Hotel. Each of the 402 rooms is impeccably designed and decorated and offers any amenity you could ask for. Each room is outfitted with marble bathrooms, pillow top mattresses, work desks and more. Guests may also take advantage of the state-of-the-art fitness centre and on-site restaurant and bar. 

Hit The Beach

Just ten kilometres from downtown Copenhagen and a short walk from the nearest train station, you will find Bellevue Beach. Popular with tourists for its ease of access, this is one of the best beaches in the region. The beach is safe for those with children of all ages as there are lifeguards on duty and showers that visitors can use to clean up in before heading back to their hotel. In all, the beach is 700 metres long and can accommodate quite a crowd in the summer months. July does offer some of the warmest water temperatures of the year with an average of 18°C (64°F) allowing for both tourists and locals to enjoy some time at the beach. 

Restaurants and Nightlife

Sleek and inviting, The Olive Kitchen & Bar is located in the heart of Copenhagen. With only 48 seats, reservations are important if you want to get a seat without a long wait. However, because of its small size, the restaurant places an emphasis on service throughout the time you are a guest. All dishes are made from fresh, quality ingredients and include such favourites as steak and crispy duck.

For dinner with one of the best views of the city, be sure to head over to Geranium. Located in the centre of the city and on the 8th floor of the Common Gardens, the view is second-to-none. Each plate that comes out of the kitchen is a work of art and will leave your taste buds wanting more. Reservations are recommended in the busy summer season.  

While it is not possible to go for a swim, one of the best bars in the city is located right on the beach. Halvandet offers guests not only a great view of the city, but also a fun atmosphere full of music and cold drinks. Guests will also be able to play a number of games including mini golf, volleyball, kayak polo and more. Additionally, the bar features sandwiches, BBQ and more at affordable prices. Easy to get to, this beach offers a great atmosphere to enjoy in the day or night.

What To Do

Tivoli Gardens is fun for the whole family and a great way to enjoy the warmer July weather. With music, food, rides and the gardens there is something for everyone. Rides include a Ferris wheel, rollercoaster, bumper boats and much more. Guests may also choose to spend the day in the park’s aquarium, hanging garden, Japanese garden or admiring the water fountains. This is one spot in the city that should not be missed.

Best known for its helix spire, the Church of Our Saviour is a wonderful place to explore and spend an afternoon. Visitors can actually climb the winding staircase all the way to the top and be rewarded with some of the best views of Copenhagen. However, with rain expected throughout much of the month, be sure to check the forecast before heading out.
