Overview
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.
Highlights
  • Walking tour of off-the-beaten-path Copenhagen spots preferred by locals
  • In-depth explanation of what hygge means to the Danish from a guide
  • Included coffee and pastry from a local coffee shop
  • Guide provides suggestions of places to visit once your tour is over
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.

This tour more than exceeded our expectations. We only had a couple of days so wanted to make the most of our time in Copenhagen. We had a nice leisurely pace visiting much of the older part of the city with 3 wonderful food and beverage stops along the way. For a few hours feel

Yaaay, thank you for this fantastic review. I'm so happy to hear our Hygge & Happiness tour exceeded your expectations, in particular since we've perfected it for 4 years now and is often recommended by Visit Copenhagen as the go-to resource for all things culture about Copenhagen. So we're just so glad when we receive feedback like this and we really hope you took some of that hygge vibe with you home, or else you're always back again on your next visit. All the best, Lars

Kamila, you're a star. I think you should consider a career in writing, because we just love your sweet, sweet comments about Sandra. She's also our go-to resource for story-telling, since she just has a way to the way she tell a story that engage people in a way we have only experienced in Disney movies! We've already suggested her to contact Disney to become a narrator, but she just laughed without unfortunately telling us she would pursue that career. But luckily that mean she will stay with us providing our experiences in an excellent way! Please don't hesitate to contact us again if you ever have any further questions about Copenhagen, I would be happy to assist. All the best, Lars

Yay, thank you for this great review, Katherine. Our Hygge & Happiness tour can indeed feel like a long walk, but we walk in a slow hyggelig pace and have breaks along the way where we pop into a few toasty places for some yummy snacks that simply scream hygge! With this out of the way, we really enjoyed meeting you and showing you our wonderful and unique culture here in Copenhagen, Denmark. Please don't hesitate to contact us again if you ever have any further questions about anything Copenhagen-related, I would be happy to help. All the best, Lars
