Wondercool is like a recipe for the perfect winter festival. Mix a generous helping of art exhibitions and culture with a dash of jazz, a swirl of fashion and the final flourish of gastronomy. In fact, Copenhagen is filled with culture and fun in February and you will not be able to head out without seeing something wonderful to brighten the mid-winter city.
The Frost Festival
This will be a chance to hear some amazing music in some of Copenhagen’s more unusual buildings. The theme will focus on closed down buildings this year and the choice of music ranges from pop, rock and folk to avant-garde, electronica and jazz. Out there venues include an empty public swimming pool and the former Danish King Christian IV’s Brewery.
The Snow Queen
The classic Hans Christian Anderson tale of love and loyalty will be a highlight of the Wondercool festival. Showing Monday to Saturday at 19.00 at Republique Small Stage you can book tickets online. If you are not familiar with the story a small girl, Gerda, travels to the end of the earth to find her childhood friend, Kai. Unfortunately, he has been bewitched by the snow queen and has a sliver of ice in his heart and does not recognise her.
Taste of Emotions
An experiment mixing art with gastronomy at Nikolaj Kunsthal. You will be treated to a video art show which is designed to heighten your culinary experience. The visual performance will represent a variety of moods and is accompanied by a special menu prepared by Copenhagen Cooking.
