Christmas markets in Aarhus
Visiting the Christmas markets in Aarhus
A visit to one of the quite exquisite Christmas markets in Aarhus naturally includes some traditional Danish doughnuts and a warming glass of Christmas grog. It is, however, also where you and your whole family can experience a true Christmas atmosphere and seek out some of those fun and very Danish traditional "climbing pixies" or new decorations for your Christmas tree. Below you can find a guide to the various Christmas markets available in Aarhus.
Christmas market in the Den Gamle By (The Old Town)
You can go exploring all the many stalls in The Old Town. Danish Christmas is never really the same without a visit to The Old Town where you are guaranteed to get into the merry Christmas spirit and where you can learn more about what Christmas was like in the olden days in Denmark, and how it has developed since then.
The Aarhus Arts and Christmas market
When you visit Aarhus during December be sure not to miss visiting the old 'Ridehuset' equestrian hall in the heart of the city. The beautifully decorated hall is vibrant and buzzing with Christmas atmosphere and the wonderful smells of Christmas baking are everywhere. There are 85 stalls offering unique and hand-made items, and lots of experiences to be had.
Christmas market by the Cathedral
By the Cathedral there are even more stalls where you can buy unique, hand-made Christmas wares. Here you will find Christmas decorations of all kinds, and this buzzing market is bound to get everyone into the Christmas spirit. When you are there, you can also choose to go to some of the Christmas concerts that take place in the city churches.
Christmas market in the pedestrianised high street
During December you will find Christmas stalls in the pedestrianised high street 'Strøget'. The glorious smell of burnt sugar almonds fills the entire city centre when you are there doing your Christmas shopping. When darkness falls, you can also enjoy the wondrous sight of the starry sky above stretching all along the pedestrianised street.
Christmas market in Ingerslevs Boulevard
In Ingerslevs Boulevard, the traditional Wednesday and Saturday markets are replaced by a Christmas market where you will find fascinating foods and traditional Christmas decorations. Even though it is winter, the market, which is right in the middle of Ingerslevs Boulevard, retains an enchanting southern-European ambience.
Christmas market at the School of Architecture – 7 & 8 December
At the Aarhus School of Architecture there is an exciting and highly varied Christmas market where the architecture students sell their own designs of clothing, jewellery and many other items. There are live bands, relaxation in the lounge, and you can by a glass of warm traditional Christmas grog in the cafe. Bring your family along to buy some unique and untraditional Christmas presents.
