Royal Copenhagen’s Christmas tables

Royal Copenhagen's Christmas tables exhibition is one of the most popular Christmas events in Copenhagen. Every year the tables are set by new artists and are on display on the first and second floor at the Royal Copenhagen complex.

The tradition began in 1963 and is very popular. Six tables, each with their wonderful story, provide a creative view of Christmas. This year, Royal Copenhagen celebrates 50 years of spectacular Christmas tables.

Parade of themes

50 years is something quite special. In true tradition, well-known creatives have been invited to interpret their favourite Christmas table setting. And they are free to choose from any of Royal Copenhagen’s comprehensive collections of iconic porcelain, sophisticated figurines and historical collectibles.

To mark the occasion this year’s exhibition represents a parade of themes from the past 50 years in that the Christmas table artists represent all themes from previous years; chefs, fashion designers, generations, furniture art, architecture, interior design, art and artists from Royal Copenhagen.

This year architects Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen, fashion designer Julie Brandt Dam, Dutch artist Wouter Dolk, jewellery designer Rebekka Notkin, interior designer Oliver Gustav and Masterchef Thomas Rode are decorating tables.

Holiday sweets at The Royal Café

At The Royal Café, in beautiful serene surroundings, you can have a smushi – the idea of sushi, but the taste of open faced sandwich. 

The Royal Café faces a small cobble stoned courtyard with an open air Christmas market that serves Christmas smushis and traditional holiday sweets, such as brunkager, crisp, flat ginger cookies, ideal with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or glögg.
