Things are "Kind of Normal" in Copenhagen: Danes really like to hygge

Copenhagen and the art of hygge

Things are hardly normal in Copenhagen! With the happiest people on earth and a city crowned as the most liveable city in the world, you have to wonder if the secret lies in the hygge … a word as difficult to translate as it is to pronounce. People of Copenhagen love to get cozy with friends and family and will go to great length for some quality hygge-time. To have a hyggelig time is sort of a social nirvana in Copenhagen. Achieving hygge often involves being with friends or family, eating lovely Danish food and drinking beer or wine in one of the many public parks in Copenhagen. You have to see it to experience it.
