December in Denmark is dark, so the Danes like to make lights throughout the city. Copenhagen is decorated with thousands of Christmas lights, accentuating the special Danish holiday atmosphere.
At the Town Hall Square you can experience the festive lighting of the Christmas tree, as well as busy shops and people rushing through the atmospheric streets loaded with packages.
If in Copenhagen for Christmas, remeber to have a look at the Christmas decorations at swanky Hotel d'Angleterre in Kongens Nytorv. Not content with just lights and tinsels, these people create whole pieces of Christmas furniture on the hotel facade! Different things every year and 2003' open fire complete with sock, a mantlepiece full of gifts and a lit birch log fire impressed absolutely everyone I met on my way home from the office.
Stroeget - The main shopping street
Wear good flat shoes,
the shopping street is VERY long!
It's Christmas time in Copenhagen too!
