As winter begins to rear its head in Denmark, the country explodes with Christmas markets. Enjoy a spot of present shopping, sample seasonal delicacies such as gløgg and æbleskiver or simply soak up the festive spirit in cosy surroundings.
Denmark is full of great things to do during the Christmas month! So fight the temptation to snooze in front of the fireplace and head out for some fun-packed days for all ages.
Traditionally the Danish Christmas tree is the common spruce type, also known as Norwegian spruce. In more recent time, the common spruce has made way for the Normann spruce as it lasts a bit longer and results in fewer scattered needles on your living room floor by New Year's Eve.
Families fortunate enough to live close to the woods try to pick and cut their own tree. But of course, most Danes have to buy their Christmas tree just around the corner.
The whole of Denmark gets into the festive spirit this time of year. Towns and cities around Denmark, such as Aarhus and Odense, are ablaze with Christmas lights and good cheer. Christmas markets, exhibitions, music in the streets; Christmas in Denmark is truly magical.
