The Danish word "hygge" (sounds a bit like “hooga”) roughly translates to coziness. However, that definition doesn’t quite cover it. Hygge is so much more and always involves creating a nice, warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. Copenhagen is packed with atmospheric restaurants and cafés, beautiful gardens, charming winding waterways, and countless places and ways to experience Danish hygge. Here are 10 suggestions for travelers seeking a touch of hygge on their trip to Copenhagen. From a classic canal tour around Denmark's scenic capital to traditional Danish smørrebrød and one of those bike trips that Copenhageners love.
Danish pastries aren't really Danish! But they are still delicious. Back in 1840, Viennese chefs brought the recipe to Denmark, and since then bakeries across the country have integrated them into their daily selection of baked good. Ask the Copenhagen pastry chefs for the scrumptious Cinnamon Snail or Roman Snail.
