  1. What a wonderful place to spend the holiday season. Thank you for sharing such beautiful pictures!

    1. You welcome 🙂 I am glad that you like it. The market might look even more magically, if there was some snow. But had no such luck haha

  2. Absolutely brilliant photography like always. 🙂 Omg, Tivoli gardens look straight out of fairy tale indeed :O What did you do there? Did you go on the rides? I love the concept of Danish hygge as that is so me! The atmosphere in Europe during Christmas time is just magical, isn’t it. 🙂 I’ll probably go to Prague after New Year’s but I will still catch the Christmas market for a day. But otherwise just here in Poland.

    1. Thanks a lot for your compliment 🙂 I tried almost everything, except the roller coaster. What I loved most is the light and water show at the lake. If I came back, I would definitely add the Nut Cracker Show in the Tivoli Theater into my list 🙂 I have heard that Prague’s Christmas Market is great too. I have seen some photos but have never been there in winter.
      How is the festive atmosphere in Polen? Any tradition, special foods or drinks 😉

  3. copenhagen is a magical place! it is honestly christmassy at any time of a year – like a fairy tale kingdom

    btw your whole blog is such an inspiration! xx

    1. It is indeed a magnificent place. I would love to visit it again, but maybe in summer or Halloween 🙂 Many thanks for your kind words!

  4. Were you in Copenhagen last Christmas? I am absolutely loving your photos and reliving all those memories! I would love to return for Christmas, as the atmosphere seems to be completely different from summer. The days are short though, so it would feel like hibernating, no?

    1. Yes, I was there last Christmas. Unfortunately, there was no snow 🙁 Hibernating during Christmas season? Hardly 🙂 Because the Glogg (Danish mulled wine) will warm you up. After 2-3 glasses, I doubt that you can even feel cold at all. Coffee shop in Copenhagen is also a good option to enjoy the Danish “hygge”, if you don’t like to stay outside. They open quite late and some even serve the hot Æbleskiver too 🙂
      For January and February, it will be a little bit boring, but it is exam season. So it is a good thing for me because I can concentrate on my study haha

      1. It would be a dream to have the chance to spend Xmas in Copenhagen. Perhaps one day…🙂

  5. Hi Len, Wow! Stunning photos of the beautiful city of Copenhagen. Now I know where you got the hint about the Danish Christmas tradition. 🙂 So you spent last Christmas in Denmark, I guess you had an awesome experience. Denmark has such an interesting Christmas tradition that fascinates me… Well, I had to stop by to say thank you for the follow and also appreciate your visit and comment on my blog. I love the ambience of your blog, it looks very interesting and I will return to read some more posts. Enjoy the season! Cheers! 🙂

    1. Thank you and very welcome, Stella 🙂 Your compliments made my day. What you said was absolutely right, Denmark’s Christmas is so magical, so traditional. I love the atmosphere and the decoration, as well as the Aebleskiver haha. Unfortunately, they don’t sell it here 😉 For Glogg, 1-2 cup is ok, but I don’t like the spicy taste that much. Happy holiday! Cheers! 🙂

  6. Tivoli Gardens look absolutely stunning during the Christmas. I really wish I could walk there on Christmas Eve! 🙂 Merry Christmas xx

    1. Many thanks! Yes, I had a great time there. But it would be more Christmassy if there were some snow. The snowstorm came a little bit late 🙂

  7. I was there last year and loved it! The people were so friendly, the food was delicious, and Tivoli was awesome! We saw the nutcracker there, and the queen made all of the costumes!

    1. Indeed a very lovely place to live! My only complain is the ultra high-living cost, especially when you have to go out for dinner 😛

      1. We were there in early November, so we were able to enjoy Tivoli all decorated for Halloween. I’d love to spend Christmas there.

      2. I’d love to spend Halloween there 🙂 How did they decorate the park? With a lot of candles and pumpkins?

  8. With all the outstanding Christmas markets in Europe, that’s big praise for the Copenhagen market. I think I’ve mentioned to you before that a European Christmas Market trip is high on my list. I’ve been thinking Strasbourg or Köln, but now I should add Copenhagen. Wonderful photos Len…thanks for complicating my decision Len😉

    1. My bad 🙂 Perhaps you should make a Christmas market tour, starting from Strasbourg and northward to Copenhagen. And probably to Finland for an audience with Santa Claus 😛 The markets usually open as early as the end of November, and they last until New Year Eve.

  9. I loved Copenhagen – one of my favourite places in Europe! It seems I must visit during this season…what beautiful pictures!

  10. I always love the look and feel of a Christmas market (and Christmas in general). It’s the time of the year when people wind down, become less stressed out, engage more with friends and families, and be happier. Although personally I don’t celebrate Christmas, but I do celebrate the joy it brings. Thanks for this warm post! (despite the fact that you went there in winter).

    1. Actually, it was not so cold. I could still pull my hands out of the coat and made photos :P. Just like you, I don’t personally celebrate Christmas. But I love the decoration, the food and the joy that people share. The usual grumpy faces are replaced by smiles. And we all have a good reason to sit together 😀

  11. Nếu buổi tối mà 5 độ C thì tuyệt quá, rất ấm. Bên này buổi tối chừng 20 độ F. Ở đâu cũng thấy rạo rực không khí Giáng sinh.

    1. Dạ đúng thế ạ. Mặc dù bản thân cháu không theo đạo, nhưng vẫn rất thích không khí Giáng sinh. Chắc có lẽ là thích mấy cái đồ trang trí rực rỡ thì đúng hơn. Lúc nhỏ thì còn háo hức chờ quà chứ giờ thì quá tuổi rồi 😛

    1. Many thanks, Susanne! I really love the Christmas atmosphere in Denmark. Somewhat magical! But if you ask me what is the thing I miss most. I would say the Aebleskiver 😛 Everything can be replicated but not this delicious sweet treat.

      1. I just made 6 batches of æbleskiver yesterday! Love them too.
        And yes Christmas in DK does seem a little more magical 💕
