Christmas starts at Skansen

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

The traditional Christmas market opens with its market square filled with food, treats and decorations. The bonfires are lit and the market stalls are filled with traditional sausages, cheeses, handicrafts, spices and essences, Christmas decorations, embroidery, leather goods, Skansen's own handmade mustard, glass, bread and cakes, hand-knitted mittens, sugared almonds, tallows, honey, marzipan, crisp bread, smoked turkey, jams and marmalades, candy, children's books and masses of other irresistible items!

Christmas is everywhere at Skansen. The historical houses and farmsteads are decorated for the holidays and the christmas tables are set. In the Town Quarter you can meet skilled craftsmen. Young and old can participate in the dancing around the Christmas tree at the Bollnäs Square and make their own Christmas decorations in the Christmas workshop.

In the Skansen museum shop you can also find traditional Swedish handicraft and world class design for sale.
