Lighten Up Copenhagen

1 – 24 February
Site: Strøget, København K

Enjoy a walk along Strøget and be delighted by colorful Chinese style lanterns. The lanterns are a part of the Happy Chinese New Year celebration, ‘Lighten Up Copenhagen’ that will be held during the Chinese New Year and create a joyful atmosphere in the dark winter time in Copenhagen. The celebration also offers a great opportunity for the locals to get to know the Chinese New Year Culture through colorful lanterns. Year of 2019 is year of the Pig.

Last year, this event was also a part of Copenhagen Light Festival, and as with the colorful festival, it was a beginning of a new tradition in Denmark. In addition, shops in Copenhagen will also decorate accordingly to take part of the festivities.
