Christmas in Denmark is the peake season of 'hygge', the Danish concept of coziness, where locals as well as tourists spend time with their loved-ones. Copenhagen is beautiful during Christmas and the winter months. Buildings and shops are lit up by thousands of lights all over the city and especially Kongens Nytorv (The Kings Square) and Tivoli Gardens, both in the heart of the city, are breathtaking experiences for cruise passengers. Christmas markets are found all over the city, big and small, and they all portray the best of the Danish Christmas tradition.
In Copenhagen, we want our cruise guests to feel the speciel Christmas atmosphere from the moment they go ashore until the moment they leave to the next port. Every year, we plan a special christmassy welcome and farewell for the cruise guests coming to Copenhagen during December. See here how we spread the holiday spirit to the cruise guests coming to Copenhagen.
