RECIPE: “SUN OVER GUDHJEM”

sol over gudhjem, smørrebrød, open-faced sandwiches, restaurant, kronborg, copenhagen, classic, traditional

We normally put “Sol over Gudhjem” on the specials board in the late summer (from the beginning of July to the beginning of September) when the fat summer herrings have taken the Nordic seas, guaranteeing juicy, flavourful herrings

“Sun over Gudhjem” (literal translation Sun over God’s home) is a classic “smørrebrød” dish with a slightly confusing name until, that is, a kind soul informs you that Gudhjem is a town on the Danish Island Bornholm famous for its tasty smoked herrings and its beautiful beach.

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…
