Danish Hygge Culture and Historical Copenhagen Walking Tour

About this activity
If you are going to get to the heart of hygge, you need to go back in time. We begin our Copenhagen tour near the characteristic yellow houses of Nyboder, a famed district that was built by King Christian IV in the 17th century to house the growing Royal Danish Navy. We walk down the small streets of Nyboder, ending our area walk with a cup of coffee and a Danish breakfast pastry. As we reach Kongens Have (The King’s Garden), you hear the dramatic story of how the once-royal park came to be one of the first public parks in the world.

As we search for more hygge, we'll continue to wander some of Copenhagen’s oldest and most charming streets, chatting about the meaning of hygge and sharing our hygge experiences, before we cross Strøget - one of the longest pedestrian streets in the world, where we will talk about Danish design and how this plays a significant role in Danish homes and hearts.

From there, we pass by the castles that house government offices and parliament and talk about both the formal and informal ways that Denmark is governed — and how the country has succeed in creating a system with a very high degree of trust and confidence. You get to see the lovely and hidden library garden, where Copenhageners visit when they need a quiet moment in the middle of the city.

We finish our walking tour of Copenhagen in a street café on a quiet street located in the city centre, where you experience hygge in its purest form.

Sandra's passion for Danish culture and history comes through clearly in this enjoyable 3 hour walk that addresses the intersection of every day Danish life with its cultural, social and historic roots. Along the way great stories and awesome Danish "snacks" are shared. We got a great sense of hygge from a native Copenhager. Well worth the time!

Great walking tour of Copenhagen and helped to explain why they are always one of the top happiest countries in the world. Not only did we see lots of sites, we heard about their lifestyle, political views and way of life that is quite different than where we live in the US. Plus, 3 great stops in a Danish bakery, chocolate house and coffee shop.

My 5 star rating partially based upon the price paid: 5 Exceeded expectations 4 Met expectations 3 Did not meet expectations but still would have engaged with the vendor 2 Would not have engaged with the vendor but wouldnt dissuade others from doing so 1 Would not have engaged with the vendor and would not recommend others doing so either PROS Morton gave a good tour and knowledge of some of the finer points of Copenhagen Small group so was able to be conversational Felt like we were getting a personal tour Exceeded expectations because we didn't focus on touristy places and get to understand a bit about Danish culture CONS None SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT None

Amazing!Our host really embodied the Hygge culture. We had lots of great discussions throughout the entire walk. The group was small so we all added something unique to the experience. Highly recommend.

Morten was great, knowledgable, and most interesting. He made it a great tour. Loved the stops. Particularly the King's Garden. A hidden gem. Loved the Summerbird Chocolate store. The best chocolate ever. We were only three on the tour so that it made it quite personal and relaxed. Bravo to Morten!

This was a grand experience. Mia was an excellent guide, full of information and stories...I liked the path she chose for us to walk, starting with the wonderfully orange military housing punctuated by the best breakfast pastry I ever ate at her favorite bakery, a stroll across the King's Garden with a stop at my beloved HC Andersen's statue, then a visit with a delightful chocolatier who was making the most beautiful spring chocolates with edible flowers and finally a drink at a coffee shop I would never have found on my own...we got a taste of Danish politics which was very interesting to both my husband and me when we paused at the Parliament building...really a great way to spend a morning in Copenhagen. Sign up - you'll be glad you did!
