Danish Christmas

Christmas is a glorious time to spend in Denmark. The festive season starts early and everybody gets involved. Food, design, socialising, culture - all the great aspects of Denmark combine and truly come to life during the months leading up to 'the main event', which is actually celebrated on Christmas Eve. In the days that follow, friends and families gather for a traditional Christmas lunch, or 'julefrokost'.

Come to Denmark over the Christmas season and experience a country steeped in unique Christmas traditions, like the Danish Christmas gift calendar, shown here!
