Know More about this tour

Begin your Copenhagen tour near the characteristic yellow houses of Nyboder, a famed district that was built by King Christian IV in the 17th century to house the growing Royal Danish Navy. Follow your guide down the small streets of Nyboder, stopping for a cup of coffee and a Danish breakfast pastry. As you reach Kongens Have (The King’s Garden), you will hear the dramatic story of how the once-royal park came to be one of the first public parks in the world.

As you search for more hygge with your guide, continue to wander some of Copenhagen’s oldest streets, where you'll enter one of the few Danish organic chocolate stores that actually make their sweets in-house. Moving on, cross Strøget, one of the longest pedestrian streets in the world, where your guide will discuss Danish design and its significant role in Danish homes and hearts.

From there, pass by the castles that house government offices and parliament and learn about both the formal and informal ways that Denmark is governed — and how the country has succeed in creating a system with a very high degree of trust and confidence. You will get to see the lovely and hidden library garden, where locals visit when they need a quiet moment in the middle of the city.

Finish your tour in a street café on a quiet street located in the city center, where you will experience hygge in its purest form.

  • Amazing!Our host really embodied the Hygge culture. We had lots of great discussions throughout the entire walk. The group was small so we all added something unique to the experience. Highly recommend.

  • Loved this tour. Highly recommend it.

  • Great tour. Amazing Danish pastries. Tour guide was very friendly, answered all our questions about Danish life and Hugge. She also spent time at the end of our tour talking to each of us about what else to do in Copenhagen. Thank you

  • Morten was great, knowledgable, and most interesting. He made it a great tour. Loved the stops. Particularly the King's Garden. A hidden gem. Loved the Summerbird Chocolate store. The best chocolate ever. We were only three on the tour so that it made it quite personal and relaxed. Bravo to Morten!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This was a grand experience. Mia was an excellent guide, full of information and stories...I liked the path she chose for us to walk, starting with the wonderfully orange military housing punctuated by the best breakfast pastry I ever ate at her favorite bakery, a stroll across the King's Garden with a stop at my beloved HC Andersen's statue, then a visit with a delightful chocolatier who was making the most beautiful spring chocolates with edible flowers and finally a drink at a coffee shop I would never have found on my own...we got a taste of Danish politics which was very interesting to both my husband and me when we paused at the Parliament building...really a great way to spend a morning in Copenhagen. Sign up - you'll be glad you did!
