On a Christmas adventure in Copenhagen


Christmas is a magical time in Copenhagen. Even this year how many things are different than usual. Fortunately, our beautiful, old capital can deliver on Christmas spirit, cozy cafes with to-go mulled wine and shops with the perfect Christmas gifts in stock.



Veronica Maggio


Vega | Sunday, 12 December 

Veronica Maggio, like no other, can capture the sound of both bubbling and unhappy infatuation. And it's almost impossible not to hum along to the songs. At the same time, add to her charming live energy and you can dance directly into the pop stratosphere. Because with her big choruses and catchy melodies, the singer always puts a bold line under that the pop stars are well developed on the other side of the sound.

Since her debut in 2006, the singer has enjoyed massive success among reviewers and fans. With over a billion streams, she is one of the absolute greatest artists in Sweden. When a new single from Veronica Maggio lands, there is also an urge to dust off your Swedish words. (Vega, December 12)



Lucia parade in kajak


December 13th is Lucia Day, and in keeping with tradition, kayaks from near and far gather once again for a floating Lucia procession through Copenhagen's canals. Up to 300 rowers row through the Port of Copenhagen with lights and lanterns and light up the harbor! The procession is a beautiful sight that can be enjoyed from the quay around Copenhagen's canals. The kayakers will sing Christmas songs in Nyhavn, Christianshavn and at Højbro Plads.



Christmas is upon us. It's time to warm our icy fingers on cups of hot mulled wine, chase the perfect Christmas present for those we love and feel the Christmas atmosphere slowly but surely creeping right under our skin. And then we have to eat, but it hardly needs to be mentioned.

Andersen Castle and spreads atmosphere, light and song throughout the Garden, so that all guests can experience the white-clad Lucia children up close. Take the family on a breathtaking December evening with lights and magical Christmas tones in the winter darkness.
