If you want to understand Denmark, you need to understand hygge . The concept can be difficult to explain, but is easy to experience — and once you have it in you, you’ll know why Danes are some of the happiest people in the world! Take a peek into Copenhagen’s local life and find your own happy hygge place.

If you’re going to get to the heart of hygge, you need to go back in time. Your Copenhagen tour will start at Kongens Have (the King’s Garden), where you’ll hear the story of how the king gave the land to the people and turned it into the world’s first public park. From there, we’ll head to Nyboder, the first public housing project in the world, dating back to the 17th century. We’ll also pass by more recent social housing, and discuss how such developments are a symbol of the changes Denmark went through after World War II. 

As we search for more hygge, we’ll continue to wander some of Copenhagen’s oldest streets, before reaching Strøget, the longest pedestrian street in the world. We’ll pause at the Stork Fountain, where you will hear about the anti-establishment cultures the city has hosted over the years. 

Next up, we’ll make a snack stop at a local café — a great example of hygge culture — and settle in for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake. 

From there, we’ll 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’ll 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’ll also pass by the impressive Royal Library, before boarding the harbour bus to Islands Brygge. 

During the crossing, we’ll chat about the green systems in Danish society, and on Islands Brygge, you will see an area that has been transformed from industry into a highly livable urban area.

4.4 - Very Good Based on 1 review
Very Good
Mr. Robert P. At
4.5 - Excellent
“The only reason I put "Good" for no. 5 is because I had already done 4 Urban Adventure walks (in Delhi, Paris and Budapest) and all had been excellent so my expectations were extremely high!! The "Hygge and Happiness" walk was a very enjoyable way to begin a stay in Copenhagen. A very pleasant walk with an excellent guide (and a very pleasant "shadower" too). Thank you so much. My only criticism would be that the starting point is a little difficult to find (as one of the roads does not seem to appear on the maps and the locals I asked did not know where it was: I was not late arriving there but I did allow plenty of time!).”
Good to know Dress standard: Please wear suitable footwear for walking, and bring an umbrella or rain jacket in case of rain.
