Christmas Market in Aarhus, Denmark

Aarhus Julemarked
The Aarhus Christmas market is perfect for any weather - it's one of the few indoor Christmas markets. It's also Jutland's biggest craft market and comes with almost 100 booths full of unique Christmas art, decorations, and handicrafts.

This Christmas market (in Danish: "Julemarked") even features workshops that show you up-close how those traditional items are made by hand. It's very interesting. You can try your own hand at some of those handicrafts or just browse along the booths.

For refreshments, the Christmas market in Aarhus has its own cozy cafe where you can get hot drinks, cakes, buns, and soups.

You can find the Aarhus Christmas market in the old "Ridehuset" (Riding house) at Vester Alle 3 in central Aarhus. The historic house was built in the 1800s and is home to this popular Christmas market every year.

Admission to the Christmas market in Aarhus is free. It is open from late November until Christmas, noon to 6 pm.

Afterwards, don't forget to visit Aarhus' "Old Town" to experience Christmas in Den Gamle By.
