Explore Copenhagen in the autumn 2021


Halloween events & tips of things to do

It's back. The season for rain, wind and dark mornings. But also the season where Danes and other Scandinavians excel in hygge, where the leaves change color and we celebrate Halloween with horror and sweets. Read along for our recommendations of things to do, see and eat in the coming months in Copenhagen.

Halloween for the brave

The otherwise cosy and chill "Reffen - Street Food Copenhagen" has been taken over by a brutal cult looking to execute everybody, who don't see the world as they do. The only way to get through is by car - your own or Reffens. On the gruesome 30-minute horror drive thru you will pass by horrific scenes of executions, torture, jump scares and visual effects that will make your heart pound. Experience the Reffen & Horror drive thru "The great reset" from October 8th-31st.

Halloween for the whole family at Tivoli

On a more family-friendly note, wonderful Tivoli has once again filled their garden with Halloween decorations - spider's webs, ghosts, scarecrows and over 20.000 pumpkins. The smell of different sweets and warm drinks fills the air and screams of excitement from the rollercoasters blend in with the screams from the haunted houses. Explore Halloween in Tivoli from October 14th - November 7th.
