Easter 2018

Easter is upon us once again and that means it’s time for an updated Easter blog post! Last year we did a post on the Danish Easter traditions and we definitely encourage that you read that if you’re curious about how the Danes celebrate Easter.

The Danish public schools will go on holiday Friday the 23rd of March and return again Tuesday the 3rd of April. The public holidays include:
Sunday the 25th of March: Palmesøndag – Palm Sunday
Thursday the 29th of March: Skærtorsdag – Holy Thursday
Friday the 30th of March: Langfredag – Good Friday
Sunday the 1st of April: Påskesøndag – Easter Sunday
Monday the 2nd of April: 2. påskedag – Easter Monday
On these days shops are likely to be closed. 
As the weather begins to warm up (hopefully soon at least) Copenhagen begins to bloom, both literally and metaphorically.
Visit Copenhagen have made a list about 7 places in which you can see Copenhagen bloom in the spring. Amongst others they mention Bispebjerg Kirkegård which in April becomes (insta) famous for the blooming cherry blosssom trees! Check out the rest of the list here!
Fredagsrock (“Friday Rock”) is back in Tivoli from 13th of April all the way till the end of September – so if you’re interested in some outdoor music this is a great opportunity. You have to pay entrance to Tivoli to get in, and the programme is full of many Danish acts as well as foreign. See the line-up here!
Besides blooming trees and music, there’s also many other activities in the Copenhagen area that are perfect for (pre) spring. Maybe trying the GoBoat in the Copenhagen harbor is your cup of tea, or maybe you’re more into a cold Carlsberg. If the latter is the case, then they have a special kids event during Easter that involves an egg hunt, horse carridges and face paint!
If you are looking for even more information on how to spend your Easter and spring in general, you can check out these suggestions also from Visit Copenhagen.

If we forgot any great recommendations, please don’t hesitate to let us know!

Happy Easter!
