The cherry blossom (sakura), the national flower of Japan, symbolizes clouds in Japanese culture due to the way they bloom all at once. That makes for an incredibly beautiful and sadly short flowering season; all the more reason to go see it while it’s happening. The concept of “Hanami” means to enjoy the ephemeral nature of flowers, usually by sitting underneath the trees and/or having a picnic. Cherry blossoms have flourished in the Northern hemisphere and can be found in Copenhagen too.
This is by far Copenhagen’s most popular spot to see the sakura. Don’t be surprised to see hordes of people snapping pics and walking along the carpet of pretty pink petals under a canopy of flowers. If you’d rather miss the bulk of the crowds, try going early in the morning and/or on a weekday.
