DENMARK: The Danish concept of "hygge" is all about finding comfort, pleasure, and warmth in simple, soothing things, Think people enjoying their best life together with family and friends; eating and drinking fabulous food and wine; street parties; bike rides or walks... all of which are central to hygge culture. So, here are our top tips on getting the best out of your Copenhagen winter holiday, with a little hygge on the side.
Rain, Hail or Snow: Danes Love Their Long Walks
Danes love long winter walks and a walk through the charming Indre By neighbourhood, Copenhagen's city centre, King's Garden parklands, or along the beautiful beach promenade in the Østerbro district are just the thing to kickstart the heart on a wintry morning. And, best of all, stretching out in your cosy apartment-style room at the Adina Copenhagen will seem even better after a brisk walk.
The Living Room: For Drinks and Snacks and Them Hygge Feels
For that familiar living room feeling on holiday, don't go past the fabulous The Living Room cocktail bar and cafe. Here you can enjoy delicious hot drinks, cold shakes, and even more delicious Danish pastries in a retro-inspired living room. It's the perfect spot to cosy up by the fireplace or rest your legs from days spent exploring this harbour city.
A Spa Experience of the Copenhagen Kind
Where else can you relax to the max by taking a spin on a spa boat through the Copenhagen canals or opt for the fire-heated barrel spa by the harbour where the deliciously decadent water ensures that you won't get cold, even in the icy winter months. And, best of all, you can relax into your spa with incredible views of Copenhagen. Sigh.
A Touch of Nostalgia at Tivoli Park
The historic Tivoli amusement park has many nostalgic rides, such as a wooden roller coaster or an enchantingly illuminated carousel for the young and young-at-heart. Countless food stalls offer Danish delicacies such as smorrebrod for those that want to try local. Our hygge tip: Warm up with a typical Glogg, the mulled wine of the region and there's punch for the little ones.
