Easter/ Påske

Due to the fact that this period is indeed highly celebrated by many Danish families, do not be surprised that by the time you want to join an event or invite someone to do an activity with you, the dates are already taken. Danes enjoy these following weeks with easter lunches or ‘påskefrokost’, egg hunts, a short holiday and/or lots and lots of ‘hygge’ with their closed ones.

Remember most schools and daycares are closed during this period, reason why many parents also decide to take some days-off from work to fully enjoy some quality time together with the entire family.

So, in case you are wondering which big events you can join during the period of the 8th and 17th of April we recommend you the following:

Activities at Den Gamle By
