Have an amazing December visit to Silkeborg’s wonderfully decorated town centre that simply oozes Christmas on every street and in every shop. 

Christmas highlights

Visit Museum Jorn and Museum Silkeborg, where the Christmas market and Christmas exhibitions bring art and culture to life with handmade treasures and traditional delicacies. And look forward to a unique experience on the water with Æbleskiwesejlads on board the historic ship Mågen.

Christmas Activities in Silkeborg

Find your Christmas presents there, have a delicious cup of hot cocoa, glögg, or coffee, and your cheeks will get nice and red during a couple of refreshing hikes through the Lake District.

At Jysk Musikteater, the programme holds Christmas and New Year concerts for both children and adults – so, young as well as old are in for great Christmas experiences. 

Enjoy the magical Christmas atmosphere at Torvet in Silkeborg, drop by the cosy Christmas markets, where the Gothenborg farm shop transforms into a Christmas world full of Christmas adventures, Stougaarden opens the stable doors for their traditional Christmas market or when Museum Jorn transforms into one of Silkeborg's cosiest Christmas markets.

Take a historic Christmas trip on the vintage railway between Bryrup and Vrads, where you're sure to feel the wonderful old Christmas as the train travels through the beautiful Søhøjland. Take the kids to the museums and find the cosy Christmas experiences at both Museum Silkeborg and Papirmuseet Silkeborg.  

And a lot more Christmas events

If you prefer Christmas decorations, Christmas trees, and Christmas markets, all you have to do is bring your family along to Christmas at Stougaarden. Here, you get the chance to relive the good old days, as Christmas at Stougaarden is filled with pastoral bliss as well as a rustic feel. You can even meet the two miniature pigs, Gurli and Grethe, along with their many adorable piglets.

Gothenborg is a veritable Christmas eldorado where you can get those very special and unique Christmas presents for your loved ones, all created by skilled artists from across the country.

Or you and your family can go around the streets of Silkeborg on the lovely Christmas train or get on the iconic veteran railway between Bryrup and Vrads when the Christmas tree express leaves the platform.
