Christmas in Tivoli is a real Copenhagen tradition where authentic summer classics have been replaced by Scandinavian Christmas mood.

In November and December Tivoli in Copenhagen has been decorated with lightning, colors and Christmas trees, and music as well as entertainment create an sizzling Christmas mood for both children and adults.

Here you can enjoy the whole day, or days, feeling you’re in a big Christmas wonderland.

Christmas Shopping
The area surrounding Strøget has a huge choice of specialty shops, ideal for shopping Christmas gifts.
In addition to chain stores like & Other Stories, Top Shop and Magasin, you should stroll into the small side streets, where you find Danish design, exciting shops, second hand shops  and charming cafes. Explore Pilestrædet and Købmagergade.

Eateries and bars
If you feel for real Danish open sandwiches, go to Sankt Anne and have them the Danish way – accompanied by a schnapps.

Do you want to experience Scandinavian gastronomy and cocktails, go to Geist. Personally we never forget to mention the fantastic service at No. 2.
