Top Christmas Hygge Experiences in Copenhagen

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.
