Springtime means warmer weather and nature coming back to life in an explosion of colors. In Denmark, spring also means a plethora of outdoor activities and fun time in the sun. Here are some of its most popular festivities and celebrations for spring: Spring Dance: This annual open-air music and dance festival is spearheaded by the Danish Dance Theater, the largest modern dance company in the country.
The performances are held in the Carlsberg Gardens where families can come and have a picnic on the grass as they watch. Aalborg Opera Festival: Fans of the opera should mark their calendars for this annual music fest that takes place all over the city of Aalborg. Started in 2002, the ten-day even features about 50 performances with full scale productions of well-loved operas such as Verdi’s Aida and Otello.
Opening of Amusement Parks: Springtime means the opening of a new season for some of Denmark’s favorite family entertainment places such as Legoland, Tivoli Gardens (the second oldest theme park in the world) and Djurs Sommerland. Aside from the fun rides, the parks offer a whole programme of events and activities that will keep visitors coming all throughout the season. Carnival in Aalborg: Said to be the largest carnival in northern Europe, the week-long event has been attracting professional carnival groups from all over the world and brings in over 100,000 visitors for about 30 years.
It is made up of three main carnival events: The Grand Parade which kicks off the celebrations with carnival groups in their costumes, the Battle of Carnival Bands and the Children’s Carnival.
