What you'll do

Christmas or Jul as we call it here in Denmark is often described as a magical time full of traditions. Unfortunately, our Christmas markets doesn’t really do Danish Christmas justice, so join me on this festive walking tour and discover the meaning behind Danish holiday traditions - both the new and the ancient ones dating all the way back to the Yuletide traditions of Viking times. Highlights - Discover Danish merry-making with a Copenhagen native and get a better understanding of Danish Christmas traditions – both past and present - Snack on holiday treats like Danish æbleskiver (a kind of Christmas doughnut), the best Gløgg (similar to mulled wine, but better!), gingerbread hearts and a Julebryg (Christmas beer) - Enjoy the festive atmosphere of holiday lights and Christmas decorations all over the city, while I let you in on the cool, odd and crazy secrets of them - Experience some of Copenhagen’s most charming places that highlight that elusive Danish Christmas hygge - Play the traditional Danish holiday game of pakke-spil that local families enjoy at Christmas time

Your hosts

Ho ho ho, we're Sandra & Kristian and we're madly in love with the Danish holiday spirit. We have 58 years of first-hand experience with Danish Christmas combined, so you better believe we have already baked our Christmas sweetmeats, compiled the dopest playlists for merry-making and hand-picked the local Christmas markets we want to visit this year. So stick it to Copenhagen’s cold and dark weather, put on your mittens, pull down your beanie, swaddle your scarf and come bundled up for some great Danish hygge with us - because as you may have heard hygge is not only just for Danes anymore (*wink, wink*.).

Where you'll be

We will visit my favorite Christmas market situated in the most beautiful square during Christmas, as well as tucked-away Christmas gems in Copenhagen's inner city. All while we warm our hands on the city's best Gløgg (similar to mulled wine, but better!) and have different tastings of authentic Danish Christmas treats before we end in a hyggelig cafe for a traditional Danish Christmas game most local families enjoy together at Christmas.
