Why is Copenhagen the happiest city in the world?

They say that Copenhagen is the happiest city in the world, but why? It has one of the highest standards of living but that well-being does not translate into great displays of luxury, but rather speaks of the sensations that are breathed when visiting this place.

It is what the Danes call hygge , and it is that art that leads people to know how to enjoy the small pleasures of life . A simple lifestyle that we will discover if we decide to get lost in its corners.

Places to experience hygge

We can experience this hygge sensation in many places in Copenhagen. We can do it at the Tivoli amusement park, which is the oldest in the world, for example. Sometimes, simply walking through its streets , observing the colors of its houses or people walking calmly, without haste. In its parks, savoring each gift that flowers and trees offer us, tasting a delicious coffee on a terrace or taking a bike ride. Everyday scenes like these that the photographs of the Copenhagen Tourist Office offer us. Do you feel like getting lost in these corners or not?
