Nyhavn Copenhagen during Christmas

** This guide has been updated with 2023 dates!**

There’s so much to love about Christmas time in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Christmas season is a magical time in Denmark where the Danish concept of “hygge” comes alive. 

Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) can not be defined in a single English word translation, but Danes describe it as a cozy sense of being. 

For Danes, Christmas is the most “hyggelig time of the year”. Sharing food, spending time with friends and family, sipping on hot gløgg, and decorating the Christmas tree by candlelight… all these moments blend into a wonderful concoction of coziness that makes up the feeling of hygge. 

Here are some of the most unique holiday experiences you should not miss during the most “hyggelig time of the year” in Denmark’s beautiful capital Copenhagen this Christmas. View Post
