Christmas market in Denmark 2021 | Blog about hotel specials

Did you know that Denmark has at least as beautiful Christmas markets as Germany? Our real Danish Annette tells you where to get into the Christmas spirit during a weekend trip to Denmark. So let’s go, pack a suitcase, into the crowds and to the mulled wine stall.

Christmas market in Tønder

The small town of Tønder is only 45 minutes from Flensburg. If you want to combine shopping with a visit to a Christmas market, then you’ve come to the right place. Tondern is not mistakenly called the Christmas town of Denmark, because when the Christmas lights come on in November and the Christmas tree adorns the market square, the whole town gets into the Christmas mood. With a varied Christmas program starting with a Christmas parade through the city to the tempting treats from the Christmas huts, everyone quickly gets in the mood.

Our tip: try the traditional Danish æbleskiver, which is consumed with jam and powdered sugar.

Apple slices

Last but not least: Visit the old pharmacy Tonrn (Danish: Det Gamle Apothek), which is located right on the market square. Already in October it is transformed into a true Christmas paradise. You are guaranteed to find what you are looking for here, because the store really has everything a Christmas heart desires. By the way, it’s Christmas all year round in the basement of the old pharmacy!

Christmas Market in Copenhagen

If you want to celebrate Christmas in Copenhagen, Tivoli theme park is the right place for you. From mid-November, it opens on its grounds an enchanting Christmas market, which annually attracts tourists from all over the world. Set in scene with tons of Christmas lights, the Tivolis garden has a tantalizing scent of cinnamon, Danish Christmas cookies and mulled wine from the nativity scenes. The Christmas stalls not only quench your thirst and hunger, but also sell Danish Christmas decorations so you can take home a piece of Scandinavian design.

Our tip: Santa Claus is waiting expectantly for all the little guests and their wishes in his Christmas room. A fireworks show on December 31 is the grand finale. For big Christmas shopping, you’re in good hands on Strøget, Copenhagen’s main shopping street. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the Tivolis.

Opening hours: November 20 – December 19, 2021

Christmas in Arhus

The open-air museum “Den Gamle By” in Aarhus has a Christmas museum waiting for you, where you can learn about Danish Christmas traditions and their history. Of course, there is also a lively Christmas market in the historic village, where you can buy your Christmas presents and try traditional Danish Christmas treats, such as the traditional “Risengrød” (similar to rice pudding).

Fairytale Christmas in Sorrows

Gram is a small town in the north of South Jutland, about an hour’s drive from Tonern. A major highlight of the town is the 16th century castle, which is only open to visitors on special occasions. The park with the castle lake, on the other hand, is open to the public all year round. For example, Christmas is a special occasion. The Brodersen family, the owners of the castle, invite visitors here for three weekends in November to get the Christmas spirit going. The program will then include a mini zoo, music, bread on a stick by the campfire and an entertaining Christmas show with small activities. The atmosphere at the castle is cozy and with about 200 exhibitors it is almost impossible to go home with empty pockets.

Opening hours: The first three weekends of November, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
