Danish Christmass throughout time-wedding

A magical Christmas experiences

Den Gamle By is a unique place where you can experience a magical Christmas atmosphere as the whole open-air museum is decorated according to different time periods through three decades. Most of the homes and shops are decorated and preparing for Christmas to give you an authentic experience.

From Torvet, the main town square, there is access to the Christmas shop and museum, the Christmas Fun House, the crafts market at Torvet, the Mayor’s House, and the Mintmaster’s Mansion. At the Merchant’s house you might get a taste of the housemaid’s cooking.

Christmas activities

You can experience Christmas all around the museum, but the main activities are happening on Torvet, where the large Christmas tree is and people in wooden stalls are selling Danish Christmas specialities. Entries to the Christmas Shop, the Christmas Fun House and the Crafts Market in Bentsen’s Warehouse are here as well.

Take a ride in a horse carriage and visit the Christmas Fun House. Step inside the shops and if you are lucky, you might come by our Living History, which is active all around to enhance your experience. Enjoy an authentic Christmas atmosphere from a time gone by.
