SKANSEN

Christmas at Skansen

Christmas at Skansen is a whole month of events and celebrations - from the opening up of the first Christmas market until the fireworks at New Year´s Eve.

There you can also find the tables set for Christmas dinner. Try the dancing games around the Christmas tree and make your own Christmas decorations in the Christmas workshop. There are Christmas menus at our restaurants and you can buy a Christmas tree for your home by the main entrance. Christmas all over the place, in other words.
