The danish word hygge describes a cozy time, the good things in life with good people. On this Wednesday, I had a typical hygge day. I woke up in my residence and to a text from friends asking me to join them for a brunch. I enjoyed a cup of tea and got ready for cycling to the city center. We met at the famous Mad & Kaffe and had a delicious danish brunch with Smørrebrød, an open-faced sandwich and a coffee. After that we decided to walk up the Rundetaarn, a round tower in the old town of Copenhagen from which you get the best view over the whole city.
After that we walked along the canals all the way to famous Nyhavn, the old harbor in the city. On the way we saw many people enjoying a boat ride and agreed that we also want to rent one of the “friendships”.
We rented a boat, drove around the canals, and got an amazing view of Copenhagen’s sights. On the boat we enjoyed some Gløgg, danish Glühwein with raisins and almonds, and some biscuits. After that we walked back and came across the famous Skt. Peders Bageri. We all were hungry after the boat trip and craved the delicious cinnamon rolls.
To end this day full of spontaneous adventures we cycled back home to the residence and enjoyed a cooking session all together.
