H.C. Andersen Christmas market

A fairy tale Christmas market in the heart of Copenhagen

The market at Nytorv square is named after everybody's favourite and world-renowned Danish storyteller. The stalls are all named after Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales, tastefully decorated with thousands of Christmas lights. You may even get to meet the famous author himself and have your picture taken with him.

Here you can taste, smell, and shop everything your Christmas heart desires. You can find Christmas decorations, gifts, jewellery, mulled wine and hot chocolate. The market also has a genuine nostalgia carousel for the kids, a Christmas caravan and of course Santa himself. In Santa's house, the younger family members can join Mrs Claus for some Christmas creativity and make their own decorations.
