Copenhagen, 1,5 hours. Experience the Danes’ favourite season and how the city is transformed into a Christmas wonderland as cosy Christmas markets and holiday decorations take over the city.
From the beautifully decorated Tivoli Gardens you will see the Christmas highlights of Copenhagen, including the stunning 20 meters high Christmas tree on the City Hall square, Royal Copenhagen’s Christmas Porcelain and, of course, the lavishly decorated facade of the Hotel D’Angleterre.

This makes Christmas shopping extra delicious!
During the tour you will learn about nisser – Christmas elves, the importance of risengrød – rice porridge and why a single almond is put in the Christmas Eve dessert risalamande. Hear about typical Danish traditions as lille juleaften – little Christmas Eve, the very popular julefrokost – Christmas lunch and how Christmas Trees are decorated in Denmark.
Did you know that H.C. Andersen created the earliest known woven Christmas Heart? Cosy up with some warm mulled wine while your guide tells the tales about how H.C. Andersen has influenced Christmas. Finally, you will taste the Danish Christmas classic: æbleskiver – delicious round pancake puffs served with strawberry jam and powdered sugar!
