Meet your guide and group near Nyboder, a neighborhood chock-full of 17th-century yellow houses. Walk down small streets you may not have found otherwise, listening to commentary on the concept of hygge, a quality important to Danish culture. Stop at a coffee shop for a coffee and pastry, and then head for Rosenborg Palace Gardens (Kongens Have), also known as the King’s Garden. There, explore the quaint space and hear how it became an early public park. Wander down some of the city’s oldest streets and stop at an organic chocolate shop for a tasting of its homemade candy. Cross the popular pedestrian street, Strøget, lined with elements of Danish design that typify hygge. Learn about Danish government and how the country is influenced by hygge. Stop by one more cozy, quaint garden before finishing up in a local cafe with a better understanding of hygge in all its forms. The tour ends in central Copenhagen.
