The days are slowly getting longer but there’s no denying that winter is still in full swing. As rain and storm shake hands with the occasional snow fall, festive lights disappear from the streets and the rhythm of everyday life has taken hold of the city again. From workshops to markets to art openings, there are plenty of Copenhagen events. And on really cold and windy days, why not go all in on Danish hygge and cosy up at home or hide in the cinema?

From parties to exhibitions to movie screenings to workshops, here’s what you should add to your calendar in February:


Monday 29th January – Friday 2nd February

Copenhagen Fashion Week AW24

It’s that time of the year again: the streets fill with well-dressed people and shows and events pop up in a wide range of locations all over the city. For this edition, the official schedule comprises of 31 physical showcases alongside events, presentations, and activations, as well as a talk program in partnership with Vogue Business.

In recent years, Copenhagen Fashion Week has gained international recognition not only for its Scandi-cool street style and local brands, but also for the introduction of sustainability requirements that every brand on the official schedule needs to fulfill.

While some applaud the latter, others criticize that the minimum standards aren’t ambitious enough. As of AW23, the Minimum Standards include 18 action points, you can find them on the website.
