Top 10 ‘Hygge’ Things to do in Copenhagen

 

hygge restaurant kronborg copenhagen lunch smørrebrød

The Danish tourism organization, VisitDenmark, has compiled a Top 10-list over the most ‘hygge’ things to do in Copenhagen. We are happy to report that lunch at Restaurant Kronborg made the list…

The ultra Danish concept ‘hygge” is taking most of the English-speaking world at the moment.
BUT it can be hard to explain the meaning of ‘hygge’ (pronounced a bit like ‘hooga’) to visitors. Roughly it translates to cosiness but that definition doesn’t quite cover it, writes VisitDenmark, the Danish tourism organisation.
Adding: “’Hygge’ is so much more and always involves creating a nice warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with people around you.”
To help visitors to the Danish capitol VisitDenmark has worked out a Top 10-list over the most ‘hygge’ things to do in Copenhagen. And lunch at Restaurant Kronborg made the list!
Read more about VisitDenmark’s ten suggestions for where to find ‘hygge’ in Copenhagen – and why they recommend lunch at Restaurant Kronborg.
Or book a table at Restaurant Kronborg, savour our home-made smørrebrød and find out about that ‘hygge’ thing yourself…

“An atmospheric tavern that serves as a perfect introduction to the world of smørrebrød; there’s no faulting the smoked eel or roast beef, but herring deserves particular consideration, whether pickled herring, pan-fried herring, marinated herring, or curried herring,” writes   Continue reading →

“Many restaurants offer special “julefrokost”, but few do it as well as Restaurant Kronborg.

“One thing I definitely recommend to do during advent in Denmark is to have a traditional Danish “julefrokost” – which translates to   Continue reading →
