When is the best time a year to visit?

In general the best time a year to visit Silkeborg Søhøjlandet is in April-August as the weather is warm and there is very little wind and rain. However December is also a cosy month to be visiting, as the christmas decorations and markets are fun to see. The whole city will be covered in lights to brighten up the otherwise dark time a year. For fishermen and people wanting to canoe along the Gudenå River in more pease and quiet February-March and September-October can be good months as well, as less people are travelling along the river these months due to the colder weather. But it's nothing that a warm sweater can't handle.
