Hyggen is a village in Røyken municipality, Norway. It is located along the Drammensfjord. Its population is 430. According to the book ”Røyken Bygd – før og nu” (Røyken County - Before and now) published in 1928, Professor Rygh assumes it was named after a small stream of water called Heggja or rather Hegg. Since there are no trace of the water stream it is more reasonable to assume that the name Hyggen is a combination of the word “vin” (wine) and a type of tree named Hegg or Heggr.
