Christmas in Aalborg

In Aalborg, Christmas can be experienced in all kinds of ways. No matter what you are into, Christmas concerts, shopping, or regular Christmas ‘hygge’, Aalborg delivers, starting Friday November 17.

As the previous years, you will find different Christmas events in Aalborg for the young and the old. Friday November 17, Aalborg City opens the annual Christmas market at Gammeltorv, which will surely spread the holiday spirit. Here, you can buy Christmas treats, arts and crafts, and nice little gifts.

The day after the opening of the Christmas market, you can look forward to meeting Santa Claus, when he arrives in Aalborg by boat to turn on the lights on the big Christmas tree at Nytorv. The tree is given to Aalborg by its friendship city Frederikstad.

Plenty More Christmas Experiences

In addition to the Christmas market at Gammeltorv, you can also visit the old City Hall, where they have put up a generous amount of decorations in the grand, impressive rooms. In C.W. Obels Square, located next to Gammeltorv, you can go ice-skating throughout the winter season.

In December, there will also be more time to do your Christmas shopping as Aalborg City’s shops extend their opening hours, including Sundays and until 19.00 every day the last week before Christmas Eve. The exact opening hours will be posted on this web site some time during Autumn.
