Find the Best Christmas Activities in Randers

The town’s big Christmas tree will light up the central town hall again this year. However, this year, the Christmas lights will be on for fewer hours than they usually are, and every single light is LED and energy-efficient.

And this year is no exception – at the little Christmas huts at the town hall square, you can as always enjoy a delicious cup of warm glögg, Christmas pancake puffs, and various other Christmas delicacies, while you watch the mechanical elves in the Christmas displays.
