November 14, 2017 • 2 min read

It’s the most wonderful times of the year… What better way to spend it then to get cosy at Christmas markets? Here’s a few Christmas markets in Copenhagen we want to visit this year.

Nyhavn’s Christmas Market
The colourful houses by the canals will soon be accompanied by tiny stalls decorated with lights. Here you’ll be able to find special Christmas gifts like handicrafts and knitwear. If you’re hungry, you’ll find some Danish delights too – apple slices, gløgg and sausages. Nyhavn’s Christmas Market is open from November 14th to December 22nd.

Christmas at Tivoli
Regardless the season, the amusement park Tivoli is year around one of our favorite places in Copenhagen. Christmas is no exception. Tivoli is adorned with all the Christmas decorations you could possibly imagine, their Nisseband plays Christmas songs in the garden and together, the amusement park’s lights creates a wonderful painting in the sky. And as always, you’ll of course be able to shop til’ you drop too! Around 60 stalls will be set up at the market, where you can buy food and drinks (of course on Christmas theme), decorations and lots of handmade items. Christmas at Tivoli is open from November 18th to December 31st.

German Christmas market at Højbro Plads
In the middle of the inner-city lies the square called Højbro Plads, and it’s here that the German market takes place from November 18th to December 23rd. This Christmas Market is a classical market with decorated trees, a reindeer and Santa’s sleigh. The square will be decorated with 80 000 (!) Christmas lights and Visit Copenhagen have their own little Christmas village for you to visit. Since it’s a German Christmas market, you of course can enjoy some German delights: glühwein, hot chocolate with whipped cream, frankfurters sausage from the barbecue and apple punch. When you’re done exploring you can shop Christmas gifts at one of the many stalls.
