Join a guided tour down the ornate narrow alleys and hear the story of all our many Christmas traditions! What was a Christmas game in the 18th century? Where does Santa Claus really come from? Why did you sleep on the floor on Christmas Eve? Hear the fun and surprising stories about the Danish Christmas traditions from the Vikings’ solstice to Christmas in 2020.
Do you eat duck, roast pork or kale?
At Christmas time, there are a myriad of specific dishes and pastries that we think belong to the season.
How did you originally bake pepper nuts and why did you start caramelizing the potatoes?
On this city walk we also tell about rice a la mande, show bread and the highly coated open sandwich.
Quizzes and nostalgia
