The Danish idea of "hygge" is one of the keys to their national consciousness. The word translates most directly to "cosy" but it means so much more. Picture a room lit by candles or an open fire, with a group of people in conversation, sharing a drink or two, and you'll have some idea of what this idealized setting represents. One of the best ways to capture hygge is to tour the bars and parks that inspire it. Take a guided tour or just wend your way through town stopping in the same places locals stop.
