Things to do

Christmas starts this weekend at the old Danish Manor Houses

You may find it too soon – however this weekend the first of many Christmas markets at old manor houses in Denmark takes place. They are great fun and often the markets represent a unique opportunity to visit sites otherwise closed to the public.

At the manor house Christmas markets you can find unique Christmas presents at one of the many booths with artefacts and decorations.

You can also bring home your Christmas tree and buy fir to make your own decorations. You can find booths with food and drink and of course – gløgg – the Danish version of mulled red wine.

The article continues below.

The annul market at Kragerup Gods is one of the earliest ones.

The estate lies beautifully in the magnificent park and “ice-age” landscape next to the small town of Rudvedby near Korsør on Zealand.

The Kragerupgaard Gods Chrismas market runs only for one weekend – from Saturday 11 to Sunday 12 November from 10:00 to 16:00. Entrance is DKK 50 for adults and children from the age of 13.

It is a popular event – so you won’t be alone – however there is lots of parking space and helpful staff to guide you.

Location: Kragerupgaardsvej 33, in Rudvedby – more information (Danish only)  here
