Right in the heart of Copenhagen, this traditional market is supposed to reflect how Christmas would have been celebrated in the time of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, whose famous fairy tales are almost 200 years old.
As you wander through the market, you’ll find yourself immersed in a twinkling wonderland of lights, where stalls sell all kinds of festive treats, from traditional Danish Christmas decorations to unique gifts. Not everything is authentically old fashioned, but it’s a pretty cute market all the same.
If you’re a foodie, stick around for the Christmas sweets and Danish gløgg – a hot, sweet and lightly spiced wine that goes down especially well on cold days.
Families with children should make a beeline for the nostalgic carousel, which is sure to delight the little ones. Meeting Santa Claus is another key highlight for kids. So, wrap up warm and embrace this festive treat – this julemarked is a real Danish delight, and a must-visit for anyone visiting Copenhagen before Christmas.
