Culture and leisure

Last Updated on

garderWhen it comes to cultural experiences and leisure, Denmark has a lot to offer. No matter what you are interested in, from sports, music and movies to fine arts, opera or museums – you will find it here.

Denmark is known for its skilful architects, filmmakers and minimalist fashion designers. If you add the fact that Danes are some of the most bicycle-friendly people in the world, you may get a sense of how versatile Danish culture is.

This also goes for the Danish lifestyle. In many ways, it corresponds to the diverse weather in Denmark. While it is hot in the summer and daylight leaves plenty of hours for sunbathing, swimming and picnics – the winters are dark, cold and well suited for traditional Danish ‘hygge’. ‘Hygge’ is a very important term in Denmark, which covers the warm and friendly atmosphere of spending quality time with friends, family or other loved ones.

Outdoor activities
