Experience hygge in Copenhagen

"Hygge" is a Danish expression for everything we share, taste, feel and experience. It’s great food, fun conversations and unforgettable moments. The icing on the cake so to speak. That's why we believe Copenhagen is THE hygge destination. Packed with moments you need to have on your to-do list, a non-stressful city lifestyle that could best be experienced in Copenhagen.

get the ultimate Hygge experience

Hygge has become famous the world over, and to such an extent that work is in progress to get the term inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. But locating it precisely in Denmark is a slightly trickier task. After all, if hygge is a destination, where is the best hygge to be had? 

What hygge is to people and where you best can experience it, varies from person to person. But in the district of Vesterbro, Copenhagen, we believe is the heart of it all.

Hygge is activity!

Some people probably equate hygge with relaxation. But activity can also provide a fair share of hygge. Each unique neighborhood in Copenhagen has its own special charm - discover them all from the seat of a bicycle.

Don’t forget the 5 Lakes. The area has become one of Copenhagen’s must-see landmarks. They connect the districts of Vesterbro, Nørrebro and Østerbro and serve as a recreational area for the people of Copenhagen.

Hygge is pampering!

The ultimate hygge is pampering each other, or even just yourself. With fabulous new clothes or the fanciest of household items from the local craft shops in Vesterbro. Take a walk down Værnedamsvej, Istedgade or Vesterbrogade and you’ll find a myriad of shops.

If you have a sweet tooth, then Copenhagen is just the place. Bread, ice cream, cakes and Danish pastries. It doesn’t get much more Danish than that. And though we say so ourselves, the quality is unbeatable.
