April is a great month to visit Copenhagen if you love spring weather and do not like tourist crowds. However, its weather can be a little unpredictable. A warm spring with up to 20 °C is entirely possible as is a sudden cold snap. An advantage of visiting in April is that it’s relatively dry with only about 30 mm of rainfall in the month. Though spring usually brings bright sunlight and cloudless skies with four to six hours of sunshine per day from March to May. With mild temperatures and reasonable hotel prices, April in Copenhagen is indeed very pleasant.
