June begins not only summer in Copenhagen, but also the start of the high travel season to the region. With nice weather, warmer temperatures and the ability to finally hit the beach, this is one of the more popular times of the year to visit. As a result, hotel rooms fill up fast and the wait times will be a little bit longer at restaurants. However, visitors are assured that all the sites they would like to see are open to guests.

Despite being home to some wonderful European beaches, they have been pretty much off limits up to now because of the cold water temperatures. However, that changes at this time of the year as both tourists and locals flock to the local waters. Water temperatures are still cold, but now warm enough to be enjoyed, at least for a short amount of time. Average water temperatures for the month are 15°C (59°F). Additionally, the area receives an average of 13 hours of sunshine per day allowing for plenty of time to get some sun.

Temperatures on land are also warmer with a daily average of 15°C (59°F). While this might be colder than other European cities for the same time frame, it can also be refreshing to get away from some of the summer heat that plague other areas. The average afternoon high is a pleasant 19°C (66°F) while overnight lows will fall to 11°C (52°F). Visitors shouldn't leave their jackets at home, but any outer gear doesn't have to be as heavy as that needed just a few short months earlier.

One drawback to traveling to the city during this time of the year is the amount of rain. Summer brings some of the wettest months of the year. Typically, the city will average 60mm of precipitation for the month. This rain will fall over 16 days making much of the month on the wet side. 

Where To Stay

For those who want the most out of their June holiday in Copenhagen, the 5-star Hotel D'Angleterre offers everything you could want and more. A multiple award winner, guests are treated to outstanding service throughout their stay that is second to none. The hotel features a total of 90 fully renovated rooms that offer handpicked art, modern touches and elegant design. The hotel is also home to one of the best restaurants in the city as well as a champagne bar.

Successfully combining modern and classic is the Absalon Hotel. Located only five minutes from some of the most popular restaurants and sights in the city, the hotel offers an energetic staff that is on hand to see to your every need. Guests will enjoy the free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, bike rentals, currency exchange with no fee, breakfast buffet and a well-stocked bar to wind down at the end of the day.

Those who want location without paying a steep price will enjoy the Hotel Bethel. Guests will have just a short walk to see some of the more famous sites of the city without giving up too many amenities. For one price, guests receive a breakfast buffet and free tea and coffee served throughout the day. 

Hit The Beach

One of the more popular beaches, and certainly one of the most crowded during the summer months, is Amager Beach Park.  This area is perfect for the entire family as there is a toddler's pool on one side of the artificial island and a sandy stretch for the whole family on the other. In all, the artificial island is a total of two kilometres long, allowing for plenty of room for the tourists and locals to visit during June and the rest of summer. Additionally, there is a park along the southern end of the island that allows for visitors to play games and enjoy lying out on the grass.

The beach also allows for plenty of water sports including kayaking, surfing and swimming. Additionally, visitors can run and skate in the areas as well.

While there, be sure to take in the view of the windmill park and bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark. 

Restaurants and Nightlife

Known as one of the best places to eat in Copenhagen, Restaurant Krebsegaarden is not to be missed. With a menu that changes based on the current exhibition in Gallery Krebsen, there is always something new to taste. Guests can choose from a single dish or try the taster menu to get a wider array of food. Combined with excellent service and extensive wine list, there is a lot to like about this award-winning restaurant.

If you are looking for something lighter, then Grams Laekkerier is an excellent choice. Known for its out-of-this-world sandwiches and coffee, this is a great spot for lunch or a quick dinner. Don't forget to give the soups a try as well, especially if you need to warm up on a chilly day. Just be sure to get there early as seating is limited and a queue can form quickly.

Visitors to Copenhagen should not pass up Rust for some late night fun. Long established as one of the city's hottest dance spots, guests are treated to three floors of the hippest music available. There is no age limit for entrance until 11:00pm. Be sure to have your dancing shoes on for a great time.

What To Do

One of Copenhagen's biggest festivals takes place in the month of June. Known as Distortion, it is advertised as a week of orchestrated chaos. The event brings in approximately 10,000 spectators to the city as it celebrates the region's club culture and street life. Throughout the week there will be up to 15 stages and hundreds of musical acts. If music is your thing, you don't want to miss this.  

One great way to enjoy the warmer June weather is by taking a trip to the Copenhagen Zoo. The zoo is one of the oldest in all of Europe and was founded in 1859. With over 27 acres and three thousand animals, there is plenty to see and do here for the entire family. The zoo is divided into several different sections including the Arctic, Asia, South America, Islands, Africa, and more. There is even an area reserved for children to meet more domesticated animals.
