Winter at the Museums

North Zealand has many museums worth visiting yearly, even in winter. Some open year-round museums include the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Frederiksborg Castle, and the Nivaagaard Collection. These museums house exceptional collections of art and cultural history, offering a deeper understanding of the significance of Danish and international art and history.

A visit to a museum can also be an excellent opportunity to spend time outdoors. Many museums in North Zealand boast beautiful parks and gardens where you can stroll around and appreciate nature and art in the open air. It's a delightful way to spend a cold and crisp winter day north of Copenhagen.

Time for Food & Drinks

In North Zealand, winter brings a cozy atmosphere to dining experiences. With a variety of restaurants to choose from, you can indulge in locally sourced cuisine while enjoying stunning views of the sea. If you are seeking a more rustic experience, dining out in the countryside offers a charming escape. Whether it's savoring traditional Danish dishes or exploring gourmet options, North Zealand provides ample opportunities to enjoy culinary delights during the colder months. So bundle up, sip on warm beverages, and savour the flavours of the season in this picturesque region of Denmark.

Come Along Into Nature

The cold weather transforms nature and the experience of being outdoors. If you've previously explored the natural area 'Rusland' on a warm summer day, the experience is different on a cold winter day. The same applies to the forest Tisvilde Hegn, where you can stroll among the magical twisted trees in the Troll Forest. And if you can't get cold enough, dip in the cold water. Winter bathing has become a popular activity, and the chilly thrill only gets better on those extra cold days.
