Christmas in Copenhagen

Over here Christmas is celebrated with millions of lights and lots of hygge

Taste the city in the winter darkness

Copenhagen promotes itself as a Christmas town. And as the town is still far from the North pole they catch the feeling of the season very well. Sad to say, some people prefer to travel during the summer and miss this exciting feast of hygge and lights. So this post is for all of you sun seekers who avoid Scandinavia during the dark and cold winter. Finally, enjoy a flashback to Christmas 2022!


Along Strøget you will find a few atmospheric Christmas markets. And this one, H.C. Andersens Christmas Market offers plenty of everything related to just Christmas. You shouldn’t miss this it.

Tivoli does not save on lights either. Because the park lits up in all it’s beauty. An absolute must see if you come here during Christmas. After all, the creative people behind Tivoli really know how to create a fantastic atmosphere.
A fun little detail: Even the traffic lights went Christmas red just when I took this photo.

At Christmas time Nyhavn transforms into a long market full of bright lights. This time of the year it is not that easy to spot the popular colored facades, but the lights of Christmas make up for this. Some warming drinks are also offered here.

Kungens Nytorv

Away at this popular square you can enjoy everything related to Christmas. So plenty of seasonal food to taste here. Indeed, the traditional Christmas candy is sold everywhere. Some stronger drinks are also served here, which warms up nicely when the cold bites. Nyhavn is right next door so it’s a perfect next destination.
