Joy to the world

Copenhagen puts on a spectacular show at Christmas. Tivoli Gardens is the city’s vintage fairground which comes to life in the winter. It transforms into an alpine-style village of wooden huts selling traditional yuletide treats under an umbrella of flickering fairy lights.

Baby it's cold outside

When Jack Frost starts to nips your nose, dive into a warm, wood-panelled pub and embrace what the Danish call hygge – the art of getting cosy. Snuggle up by a roaring log fire and warm through with a hot mug of gløgg – a cinnamon-spiced red wine.

The stuff of legend

Fairy tales, folklore and forts hide round every corner of this curious city. Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid watches over Copenhagen’s harbour, welcoming its visitors.  Meanwhile, royal jewels and treasures reside in the spectacularly ornate Rosenborg Castle, complete with spires and turrets. In Roskilde, uncover historic tales of combat and crusades at the fascinating Viking Ship Museum.
