While some Europeans revel in haute couture and haute cuisine, the Danes relish what they believe to be the height of sophistication: hygge. Defined as "comfort" or "coziness," hygge is a value reflected throughout Copenhagen, from the skillfully restored antique furniture to the hearty meals served in traditional Danish restaurants. Quality of life is a given: After all, the Danes have frequently been named the happiest people in the world. So go ahead, experience life as the Danes do: Hop on a bike and tour Indre By, visit the squatters in Christiania, munch on a Danish pastry in Vesterbro or simply wander around and see for yourself why this is one of the most livable cities in Europe.
