Christmas in Copenhagen embodies the concept of hygge where locals and visitors enjoy themselves and some delicious treats surrounded by loved ones and in intimate, cosy settings. For instance, Tivoli Gardens, the Christmas markets, and the many quality restaurants serving up traditional, Danish Christmas delicacies.
Freetown Christiania in Copenhagen usually hosts a Christmas market, which is an unconventional Yuletide fair reminiscent of an Oriental bazaar. Step into the hustle and bustle and wander through the multitude of stalls offering fine handicraft items, hand-made jewellery, mirrors, wrought iron candle holders, paper-cut Christmas mobiles, clothes, leather masks among many other things. Take in the scented ambience of this vibrant and very different market in the Grey Hall in Christiania and participate in a time-honoured Copenhagen Christmas tradition.
From 8 December to 20 December.
