November has arrived in Copenhagen and this means it’s time to embrace the darkness with candles and lots of hygge.

While fog is hanging over the canals and the ground is covered in colorful leaves, this is the perfect time to slow down and enjoy everything the city has to offer before the pre-holiday stress picks up.

Exhibitions, parties, flea markets, film screenings, and the first Christmas events; as always, there’s plenty going on in Copenhagen.

Here are all the best Copenhagen events you need to know about this month:

Monday 1st – Saturday 6th November
