Danish Hygge Culture and Historical Copenhagen Walking Tour
Discover the Danish concept of ?hygge and happiness? on a 4-hour cultural walking tour of Copenhagen. On the guided walk, learn all about the nation?s easy-going way of life and the hygge vibe, and see a side of the city that many visitors miss. Attractions such as the 17th-century public housing project of Nyboder, the historical site of Kongens Have and the shopping street of Strøget are taken in on the tour. Coffee and cake ? favorite Danish treats ? are also included.

Start your Danish culture tour with an intro to the country?s history at Kongens Have (aka the King?s Garden), which surrounds Rosenborg Palace (Rosenborg Slot). The beautiful garden near Øster Voldgade was gifted to the Danes from King Christian IV, making it one of the world?s first public parks.

As you discuss the uniquely Danish concept of hygge and happiness with your guide, stroll to Nyboder, to see a great example of an early public housing project. The site dates back to the 17th century, when the area was commissioned to house many of the nation?s key workers.

Continue your walk through the city, searching for examples of hygge, and take in several of the city?s oldest streets. Amble along Strøget, one of the world?s largest pedestrian shopping streets, and pause by Stork Fountain to hear about the anti-establishment culture that?s prevalent in the city.

Call in for a cup of coffee and cake at a cozy local cafe, and then continue your walk past the castles that house several government offices as well as the Danish parliament. Hear how Denmark is governed, and how the country has created a political system that?s largely trusted by its people.

Swing by the Royal Library to see a hidden garden, where Copenhageners escape when they need a moment of quiet, and then hop aboard the harbor bus to finish your tour with a visit to Islands Brygge. The must-see neighborhood on the island of Amager is an area that?s been transformed from industry into one of the city?s most desirable addresses.

After exploring the area your tour will end at Sluseholmen, and you can walk to the city center of Vesterbro from there.
