(Need a) Winter Break 2018 (?)

It’s no secret that the past few months in Denmark have been quite dark and grey. February is the last month of winter and Copenhagen offers many great events that will help shake off the darkness and prepare ourselves for brighter days. The Danish schools will be closed in week 7 or 8 and that also means more family time for many families. Whether you’re looking for things to do with kids or things to do without kids, this post will show our favorite ideas on how to spend the last month of winter.


Picasso ceramics at Louisiana from 1 February – 27 May. This exhibition has gotten amazing reviews and if you haven’t visited Louisiana yet, there are probably many other interesting exhibitions as well. Find more information here!
