    Copenhagen in Winter: The Complete Guide (including the best Copenhagen Christmas Markets!)

    I don’t know if I’ve ever been to a place more magical than Copenhagen in winter. With only a few hours of daylight every day, the Danes had to figure out how to do Christmas right–lest they fall into a seriously deep depression. After having visited Copenhagen in both May and December, I think I can safely say that Copenhagen in winter is one of the best times to visit. Even though it’s cold, Copenhagen truly comes alive during this time of year, promising for a unique experience. And as for the cold, all you have to do is make sure you pack right 😉 Convinced?

    Hygge Tour Copenhagen // How to Find Hygge in Copenhagen with Copenhagen by mie & Friends

    Copenhagen by Me & Friends hosted Megan and I as guests in exchange for my honest review of their Hygge & Happiness tour. As always, all opinions are my own. When my friend and former flatmate Megan was convincing me to come to Copenhagen with her at the beginning of December, she only had to say one word: hygge. Although I’d been to Copenhagen before, I felt like my first trip had been sorely lacking in that distinctly Danish feeling of cozy charm.
