What you'll do

Experience the Danes’ favourite season and how the city is transformed into a Christmas wonderland as cosy Christmas markets and holiday decorations take over the city. Copenhagen’s Christmas Spirit is in the air!

During the Copenhagen’s Christmas Spirit tour you will learn about nisser – Christmas elves, the importance of risengrød – rice porridge and why a single almond is put in the Christmas Eve dessert risalamande. Want to celebrate Christmas the Danish way even more? With your guide, discover more about typical Danish traditions such as lille juleaften – little Christmas Eve, the very popular julefrokost – Christmas lunch and how Christmas trees are decorated in Denmark.

And we can't forget to talk about one of our favourite Danes and his mark on this festive time of year! We're talking about H.C. Andersen of course! Did you know that H.C. Andersen created the earliest known woven Christmas Heart? Listen while your guide delights you with the tales about how H.C. Andersen has influenced Christmas in Denmark. Finally, you will taste the Danish Christmas classic: æbleskiver – delicious round pancake puffs served with strawberry jam and powdered sugar!

Get ready for 90 minutes of genuine Danish Christmas that guarantees you left with a Christmas Spirit that lasts the whole season!

Meet your host, Natalie

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I'm the founder of OURWAY Tours, specialising guided tours within Scandinavia. I started in Stockholm, 2011, as a qualified guide with the question: What do people enjoy when they travel? The answer we found, is to: "Meet the people, try the food, live the stories" and so that's what we do.

Our team of handpicked locals want nothing more than to share their love for the city with you. If you're lucky you'll tour with: Friederike, Giulia, Marc, Silke or Ulf.

In short, we give you "people, places, and culture—the local way".
