Discover the Danish 'hygge'

Stay at a traditionel inn or hotel and discover the Danish 'hygge'

If you ask a Dane, an inn or restaurant is often recommended by its 'hygge' factor. You're almost certainly guaranteed lit candles on the dinner table to create a cosy atmosphere. If you stay at some of the many Danish small inns hotels, royal castles or manor houses all over Denmark, you can find some of this cosy 'hygge' atmosphere.
 

What is 'hygge'?

'Hygge' is most closely translated to "cosiness" and pronounced 'hoo-ge'. This Danish concept cannot be translated to one single word but encompasses a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life.

Hygge is an important part of being Danish and an integral part of the Danish DNA. If you met up with a close friend of yours and had a good time, you say thank you for a 'hyggelig' time when you meet again. Danes probably use the word 'hygge' in as many sentences as possible. 'Hygge' is indeed an essential part of Danish culture. 

Danish doctors recommend 'tea and 'hygge' as a cure for the common cold like with porridge in other countries. 

 
Also popular in England and U.S

In England and New York 'hygge' has also become popular and several books have been published in the last year about the topic in English, and it`s also trending on social media.

The term is often mentioned in the same paragraph that reminds us that Danes are the happiest people in the world.
