Hygge is the Danish concept of cosy or happy living, and the capital city of Copenhagen very much reflects this warm, communal vibe. Set on the coastal islands of Zealand and Amager, the city feels closer to nature than most other urban centres with its canals and many pockets of green. Hygge Travels in Copenhagen is a comprehensive guide to the very best places to eat, drink, shop and explore in this fascinating city. Go beyond the hordes of cyclists and the Little Mermaid statue to discover sustainable eateries, cutting-edge design museums, flea markets that flaunt boho chic, and tucked-away cafes and bars where you can relax with a hot chocolate or malt whiskey, and a rug to warm your legs. Author Helena Smith shares not only Copenhagen's highlights, but also unlocks some of its secrets, so in no time you'll be living like a local. Full-day itineraries help you navigate the best of the city, while the daytrips section covering modern art galleries and a viking ship museum allows you to make the most of your trip. Experience the best of Copenhagen, whether you have just a few days or longer to enjoy the city.
