Christmas in Copenhagen.

Please could one of the experts tell me what is on over Christmas. Especially Christmas Day.

Thinking of stopping over for a few days over the Holiday. Any advice regarding restaurants and things to do would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

1. Re: Christmas in Copenhagen.

Hello,

in DK, we celebrate Christmas on the 24th of December, having a big family meal at night, opening presents late at night - spending the entire day of December 24 preparing this. On Dec 25, we usually spend the day having lunch with family, and the 26th is quite similar. Shops are closed on those 3 days, as are some sights, but look up the things you want to see or do, some might be open - but on Dec 24 and 25, expect the city to be closed and quiet, except for some grocery stores etc., That said, it is a nice time to visit, the city is very Christmassy and more quiet than usual... makes for nice long walks in the city, enjoying the Christmas lights and decorations - and there should be plenty of things to do despite the closed shops, most of the popular sights (Rosenborg Castle, Round Tower, to name a few) are open on Dec 26. Also, the Christmas market in Tivoli should be open, but I don't know the exact opening times yet for the actual Christmas days.

On Dec 27, it is all back to business.

There are some restaurants open during the Holidays, I would strongly recommend booking ahead, especially on Dec 24 and 25.

We too are headed to Copenhagen for December 24-26, and having a difficult time finding any restaurants at all to book for the 24th and 25th. Can anyone here make a suggestion? Thank you!

Try the hotel restaurants. The Christmas Eve at Nimb Brasserie (Nimb hotel) overlooking Tivoli looks inviting.

We are also looking for somewhere to have a Christmas meal in Copenhagen. We don't mind if it is on 24th or 25th December. We are 3 adults and would prefer to spend under 500 dkk each. Thanks.
