Description

Hygge is as Danish as pork roast and it goes far in illuminating the Danish soul. In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too. There's nothing more hygge than sitting around a table, discussing the big and small things in life. Perhaps hygge explains why the Danes are the happiest people in the world?

In the summertime, hygge is spending time in the sun, over a beer at the pier, a picnic in one of the parks or just hanging out with good friends in one of Copenhagens many picturesque and historical back yards.

This 4 hour walking tour will show you what hygge is all about.

Meet your guide at the hotel to start a 4 hour tour of hygge. We will start the tour exploring the Latin quarters around the pedestrian street Strøget.

The Latin Quarter is one of the most entertaining areas of Denmark's capital city. It is a young-spirited place, as the campus of Copenhagen University is located here. The Latin Quarter is well known for its hang-out spots, alternative shopping and 17th-century architecture.

Part of Danish hygge is having coffee with friends, so we will pickup a cup of coffee to go and a cinnamon roll at Sankt Peders Bakery, Copenhagen oldest, founded in 1652.

We continue our tour in the Latin quarters visiting the church of our Lady. It’s situated close to the University of Copenhagen. The Church of Our Lady is one of the popular churches in the city. This cathedral was constructed in neo-classical style in 1829 by the famous architect Christian Frederik Hansen.

Walking up to The Round tower, we will peak in to some of Copenhagen cozy court yards, where the inhabitants have their hideaway from the bustling city, with flowerpots, benches and tables for nice gettogethers with neighbors and friends or a quiet corner to wind down with a good book.

The 17th century tower and observatory Runde taarn, or the round tower, is the oldest functioning observatory in Europe. When Christian IV built the tower, Denmark was quite famous for its astronomical achievements thanks to the astronomer Tycho Brahe. When he died in 1601, the King wished to continue Brahe's research, and thus the round tower came into being. From the top, you have great views of Copenhagen and the Latin quarters.

Food is a big part of the Danish soul. When Danes meet over a good meal, they often talk about another good meal had in the past or one they will have in the future.

In the summertime one of the most popular outdoor meeting places in Copenhagen, is the Kings garden (Kongens Have). Here people meet on the green lawns enjoying a beer, an ice cream, a coffee or a picnic. Since Hygge also is meeting with friends over nice food we have arranged for a picnic in the park with some Danish comfort food and a classic Carlsberg beer.

The tour will end in Nyhavn from where you can take a tour of the Canals or just sit in the sun and enjoy another beer before walking back to your hotel along the pedestrian street.
