Christmas in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a genuine Christmas city, where it is impossible not to get in the spirit for the Christmas holiday season. The best place to soak up the atmosphere is at one of Copenhagen’s Christmas markets.

One of the most commonly-used words in Denmark has no English translation. Hygge, pronounced hoo-ga, is often translated as coziness. But to the Danes, hygge means a lot more than that. Deeply rooted in the Danish culture, hygge is about living in the moment and spending quality time with friends and family. Enjoying delicious food or a great cup of coffee, having a good time with loved ones or creating a cozy atmosphere, usually by lighting candles. That’s hygge. It even has its own adjective, as in: “This restaurant is so hyggelig” or “It was hyggeligt to meet you.”

The high season for hygge of course is Christmas. Hygge is the main ingredient in the recipe Danes use to cope with the cold winters and at the same time, hygge is a key element to finding the holiday spirit.
