What makes Vinterjazz unique?
“Going to the Copenhagen festival is a thrill for the jazz curious, though, requiring some advance planning and transit strategy to catch the various shows in venues spread around the city. The very act of “doing the Copenhagen fest” is a fine way to learn about the city’s neighborhoods and its venues.” – Josef Woodard, Downbeat
This is a unique festival as it takes place over so many venues across the country, including Aalborg, Copenhagen and Helsingor. It's a great chance to check out some cool music venues in Copenhagen and further around Denmark if you're lucky! Enjoy the festival and stay with us at Copenhagen Downtown Hostel!
