9 Christmas Markets to Visit in Copenhagen

If there is one thing I missed during our time in Finland, it was Christmas markets. Now, Christmas markets in Copenhagen still do not come close to those I used to visit in Austria, but I have to admit that Christmas markets in Copenhagen do have a certain charm. I have made it a mission to visit all of them before Christmas Eve. Mission impossible? We’ll see! One can never have too much gløgg or æbleskriver! Below we have compiled a list of all Christmas markets in Copenhagen for you! Oh, and there’s a map at the bottom for you 🙂
