The smell of gløgg and other delicacies at the many Christmas markets in Copenhagen will not entice you to have a taste this year, most of the markets in Copenhagen City have been cancelled including the large popular ones on Kongens Nytorv and Højebro Plads.

The city will still be decorated, in fact the large red hearts have been hung up over the pedestrian streets and they were lit last Saturday and will be until the beginning of January 2021.

Tivoli and Bakken have opened with their traditional Christmas decorations, stalls, and eateries.

To enter Tivoli you will need to buy a time slot (free) to get in together with the entrance ticket. The time slot can be ordered online so you know that you can get in. This is so that Tivoli can avoid too large crowds inside the amusement park.
