Danish Hygge Culture and Historical Copenhagen Walking Tour

Take a deep dive into the Danish concept of hygge on this Copenhagen walking tour. Most often translated as "coziness," the concept is important to Danish culture, and understanding it helps travelers get a handle on the ways of the Danes. Through a guide's commentary and stops at off-the-beaten-path historical sites you may have missed on your own, come to a deeper understanding of the city, country, and its people.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and group near Nyboder, a neighborhood chock-full of 17th-century yellow houses. Walk down small streets you may not have found otherwise, listening to commentary on the concept of hygge, a quality important to Danish culture.

Stop at a coffee shop for a coffee and pastry, and then head for Rosenborg Palace Gardens (Kongens Have), also known as the King’s Garden. There, explore the quaint space and hear how it became an early public park.

Wander down some of the city’s oldest streets and stop at an organic chocolate shop for a tasting of its homemade candy.

Cross the popular pedestrian street, Strøget, lined with elements of Danish design that typify hygge.

Learn about Danish government and how the country is influenced by hygge.

Stop by one more cozy, quaint garden before finishing up in a local cafe with a better understanding of hygge in all its forms.

The tour ends in central Copenhagen.

Completely enjoyable - Highly recommended!

Our guide Mie was wonderful. I did this tour with my friend from England, and as it happened, a young couple of law grads from Manhattan. The tour began in the 1700s district of old military row cottages, which was a highly photogenic area. We...More

Fantastic experience!!

Copenhagen was the last stop on our Baltic Cruise and Mie's "Hygge and Happiness" tour was just what we needed. The tour gave us a refreshing and light-hearted look at the Danish people and culture while, at the same time, delivering so many interesting snippets...More
