Christmas at Tivoli

December 10, 2014


Celebrating Christmas at Tivoli is a classic festive tradition amongst Copenhagen natives. Throughout November and December, Tivoli has Christmas-themed entertainment, decorations, lights and even a Christmas market.

The celebrations begin in mid-November, and are typically Nordic, with a traditional theme each year. A huge area in the centre of Tivoli (approximately 1200 square metres!) is packed full of Christmas decorations and lights, traditional Nordic wooden chalets, ornaments and sculptures and much more, transforming Tivoli into a festive winter wonderland which captures the hearts of tourists and locals alike.

Tivoli also hosts a 2000 square metre Alpine village, with skis and sledges placed between classic alpine houses. There is also an Alpine Express train and a merry-go-round, setting the scene for a magical alpine Christmas.

Each year on December 13, a collection of up to 100 girls from various choirs across the city will walk through the centre of the city, beginning and ending at the concert hall, as part of the St Lucia procession.

Every year, Tivoli Gardens hosts a Christmas market with over 50 stalls, selling traditional food and drink, gifts, arts and crafts and plenty more. What’s more, you can also see the fireworks display light up the sky above the gardens on the nights between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

This year, the Tivoli concert hall is putting on a true Christmas classic, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, but with a unique spin on the traditional story. The Nutcracker now takes place in Copenhagen and references the local area heavily. Local hero Hans Christian Andersen even makes an appearance as the storyteller.

Tivoli is a great destination for an unforgettable Christmas, and you’re sure to find plenty of great gifts to take home, ensuring you give the best presents this year, plus you’ll get to enjoy all of Copenhagen’s charms.

As documented by The Los Angeles Times, Adidas Yeezy sneakers are some of the most counterfeited shoe designs in the world because of their huge market and limited production. Each pair of Yeezys has been produced in a run of just 40,000 pairs.
