What is “hygge”?
What is hygge? Well, this is not an easy answer. It can mean a lot of things but in general, it means something cozy, homey, and simple like reading a book indoors on a rainy day. This Danish lifestyle trend had acquired an official term that describes it since the 1800s.
This lifestyle trend can be found in several northern European countries like the Netherlands or Germany with a different name of course. If you are the kind of person who loves staying indoors or shivers with delight at the thought of a crackling fire then this is a culture you need to get in touch with if you are in Copenhagen. How? A visit to a warm cafe with a book is just one example.
It will surely be something you take with you back home since it is already a familiar feeling anyone can relate to. How can you do that while being on a few days’ vacations? Amazingly enough these days there is a guided tour dedicated to the “hygge” culture in Copenhagen. More
