The Danish Concept of 'Hygge' and What it is!
So trendy it's now all over Instagram and people are writing books on how to do it - let us show you how to get some of the Danish concept of hygge in your life!
In our busy, modern lives all of us crave happiness, comfort and more simple lives and the Danes really know how to meet this challenge in a totally unique way – with hygge! What is the much coveted Danish hygge? Hygge, or “hue-guh” translates most easily as ‘coziness’ - but it is much more than this.
If you take the time to walk through a wintery Copenhagen, it’s not the cold weather that defines the attitude of this city. It is the way that local people know how to embrace the moment: to live well. Get cosy in one of our candlelit bars, enjoy the warmth of a good coffee and pastry, sit in the sunshine on a terrace under a blanket - appreciate it all!
A Year-Round Good Feeling
The word hygge is bounced around in the winter months but this totally Danish feeling is a year round phenomenon. In a nation which values living well – with our friends, lovers and families – that amazing feeling of happiness and togetherness is everywhere you go in a city that knows how to be snug in winter and how to celebrate every day of the amazing Danish summer.
It Makes Us Happy!
All this hygge makes people happy – the 2016 World Happiness Report gave Danes the enviable top spot as the world’s happiest people so get busy living the hugge way!
If you want to share a great day or night with friends new or old then make time for hygge when you visit one of the coolest city and happiest cities in the world!
Hygge Activities This Winter
Whether you want to see first-hand the light installations that illuminate the winter nights in the city centre with festivals like FROST 17, want to relax to a massive choice of daily live music shows in intimate venues, sample some of the world’s best made coffee, share great food with friends by candle light, or simply to make new friends over a warm glass of mulled wine or gløgg - it’s hard to escape this all embracing Danish concept everywhere you go!
