Find Hostels all over the World
Christmas shopping, from cheeky to freaky!
Ice-covered streets, drinking the Scandinavian sweet & spicy wine-drink "Glogg" under 1000 christmas-lights, window-shopping, the cold freezing your nose..
Yes, Copenhagen or Kobenhavn as the natives say, is really and truly, a city worth visit during Christmas -from fancy and worldfamous design, at Illums Bollingshus to vintageshoppping in Norrebro!For Christmas-gifts for that special someone, you'll find everything you ever asked for!
At Elmegade in Norrebro and Istedgade in Vesterbro, you'll find something for your love, like a silky negligee for your godess or the classic gift - the tie, for that boyfriend of yours...
Pay a visit to one of the many antique-shops at Ravnborgsgade for danish retrodesign like Arne Jacobsen and invest in a classic egg or swan-chair for grandpa to lounge in after christmas-dinner...At "Systrarna Green", a wonderful and colorful warehouse, you'll find quirky gifts perfect for the sock hanging from the fireplace as well as something for the little sister or all the 40 cousins you forgot you ever had...
If you're more the outdoors;y type, instead of sick-sacking between crazy shoppers in a warehouse with something insane in their eyes?! Go for ancient Tivoli! This amusementpark located at Nyhamn is open for you even during christmas-time, and psst! the attractions are open too!
It's the 18th birthday of the christmas-market at Tivoli, and the danish will celebrate it big fo shizzle! Christmas at Tivoli is open from 11/11-30/12 and have a russian theme this year, including a miniversion of the St. Basil's Cathedral with a 21 m tower with onion domes and a carillon!
So, enjoy Tivoli, feel like a child again, take a stroll bewteen up to 70 different shops, enjoy your hot chocolate with marshmellows under all the coloured lights and then go for a ride in one of the attractions!
Ok, but let's say, you're not a child. In fact, you're a grown up with little or no interest at all in hot chocolat. Let's say you're a little more into buddha than Father Frost. Well, then shoot for the well-known and very openminded sanctuary Christiania! Yes, there's a market here too, but you're more likely to find incense here than cotton-candy! This alternative market is open between the 8th to the 20th of december! It's something you never seen..so go for something different this christmas..could be fun aye?!
