Christmas in Den Gamle By - The Old Town Museum

Go exploring in the historical houses og see the origins of Danish Christmas traditions; enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, traditional Christmas food, sweets and goodies from the stalls; or buy Christmas decorations and presents in the period shops. Follow the twenty four lit lanterns along the Christmas route through Den Gamle By, and go on a fascinating and illuminating journey through the history of Danish Christmas going back for some four hundred years. Enjoy the sight of Christmas decorations from the 17th century right up to 1974, and see when the Christmas tree, the Yule Goat, and Christmas decorations became part of the Christmas tradition in Denmark.
