For festive fun beyond the city, head to the west Jutland coast where the Sculpture Park at Blokhus is hosting one of the most spectacular Christmas sound and light shows in Denmark. As Denmark’s largest open-air art exhibition, the park contains some of the country’s finest sculptures made from various materials including sand, wood, iron, stone, granite and bronze. At Christmas, the gigantic sand sculptures that decorate the park, with the theme this year of ’Wild Vikings’, are illuminated by thousands of coloured lights. These combine with the unique Christmas decorations, such as a 46 metre-long illuminated Christmas avenue and a 17 metre high Christmas tree to give the whole park a thoroughly festive glow and are accompanied by a three-minute sound and light show which can be enjoyed throughout the park every 15 minutes.
In the park’s Christmas market local specialities such as sausages, mulled wine and cakes can be bought from the cosy heated stalls. You can also head inside to the cafe for specially brewed Christmas beer and a warming glass of schnapps. The park is open from Tuesday – Sunday throughout November and December.
