If you want to understand Denmark, you need to comprehend hygge. The concept can be hard to explain but is easy to experience. Once you have it, see why the Danes are some of the happiest people in the world as you get a glimpse of life in Copenhagen and find your own happy hygge place.
Your tour starts at Kongens Have (the King's Garden), where you hear how the king gave the land to the people and turned it into a public park. Then head to Nyboder, a row house district built to house sailors and their families in the 1600s. 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 you search for more hygge stroll along Strøget, one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe. At the Stork Fountain, hear about the anti-establishment cultures the city has hosted over the years and then stop at a local café, a great example of hygge culture, for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake.
Passing castles housing government offices, discuss how Denmark is governed and how it created a system with a high degree of trust and confidence. After seeing the hidden Library Garden locals often visit, pass the impressive Royal Library and take a harbor bus to Islands Brygge—a former industrial area transformed into a livable urban neighborhood—and chat about the green systems in Danish society.
