While spring can be a pleasant time to visit, it may be best to wait a month or two for temperatures to really begin to climb.

During this time of the year the average high temperature is still just 5°C (41°F). Combined with a strong wind, temperatures will feel much cooler than they actually are. Additionally, the average overnight lows will continue to hover at the freezing mark with temperatures falling to 0°C (32°F) by the early morning hours. Overall, the average daily temperature is just 3°C (37°F).

Copenhagen is still likely to receive snow during the evening and overnight hours when lows are near freezing.  However, more liquid precipitation is likely during the daylight hours. Overall, the region remains wet with an average of 15 days receiving measurable rainfall. With all the precipitation likely, there isn't a good chance of seeing the sun. For the month, the area only gets an average of 5 hours of sunshine per day. Meanwhile, it is expected that the area will see an average of 40mm of precipitation throughout the month.

Just one month after experiencing the coldest water temperatures of the year, things haven't warmed up very much. The average water temperature for this time of the year is still a cold 3°C (37°F). It will still be several months before visitors will be able to dip their toes in the local waters. Until then, it is best to stay dry on land and enjoy what the city has to offer. 

Where to Stay

One of the most contemporary and awarded hotels in all of Copenhagen is the First Hotel Copenhagen. With the weather beginning to warm ever so slightly in March, now is a good time to beat the summer rush and book one of the luxurious standard rooms, superior rooms, junior suites or master suites. All rooms feature flatscreen TVs, free WiFi, and luxurious accommodations. Guests may also try traditional local dishes in the on-site restaurant.

The Savoy Hotel is a family-run establishment located in the heart of the city. Guests will be just minutes away from some of the best shopping in all of Denmark as well as the meat packing district full of galleries and restaurants. All the hotel's rooms have been recently renovated and face an inner courtyard allowing for a quiet stay. There are only 66 rooms in total, so be sure to make your reservation early.

Located in downtown, the Tivoli Hotel is the perfect choice for the business traveler or those who enjoy a relaxing holiday. The hotel includes a business center, bike rentals, car rental and free WiFi throughout the building. Guests can also beat the weather by enjoying the indoor swimming pool, fitness center and you can bring your family pet.   

Restaurants and Nightlife

While not technically a restaurant, tourists should not miss Copenhagen Street Food. This venue is actually a combination of food trucks selling dishes from around the world. A city staple, visitors can stop and sit while enjoying a variety of meals for very reasonable prices. Be sure to go hungry as you will want to try a little of everything.

Food masquerading as art is how one might describe the dishes served at Amass.  With a menu that changes on a daily basis, the chefs are always in search of the perfect ingredients to serve at the peak of freshness. By serving nothing but the freshest of foods, guests are assured of fabulous food. Reservations are highly recommended at this popular restaurant.

If you want a night out that includes plenty of dancing, but not plenty of teenagers, then Nord is for you. Only those 30 years of age and older are allowed in, but that doesn't mean the club isn't hopping. With both a dance floor and lounge, there is plenty of space to spread out, but still meet people from around the world. With a DJ spinning music on a nightly basis, get ready to dance the night away. 

What to Do

If the weather is not cooperating in March and conditions remain too cold, be sure to head indoors to the Denmark National Aquarium. Recently completed, the museum is over 10,000 square meters in size and divided into eight different sections. In all, the building is home to thousands of animals living in 53 aquariums and installations. Guests may take advantage of guided tours as well as a myriad of programs and events. Be sure to check the website to see what is taking place while you will be in town.

Since its installation in 1913, the Little Mermaid statue, in Copenhagen, has been a popular tourist attraction. Located on a rock near Langelanie, the statue is small and unassuming. Based on The Little Mermaid short story, the statue has recently become a target for vandalism. However, it is one spot that is worthy of taking a picture while in town.
