Fragrances of cakes and hot drinks, Christmas trees and decorations … Get ready for the magic of Christmas!

 

Christmas at Tivoli
Elves with red hats, colourful Christmas balls and small wooden houses will join the Russian Vasilij cathedral, as Tivoli takes the best from two worlds for their Christmas season this year when the Russian Christmas adventure meets the old-fashioned Scandinavian ‘jule-hygge’. Try out ‘the Siberian Railway’ – one of six exclusive Christmas rides – have yourself a homemade gingerbread from one of the stalls, and just soak up the magical atmosphere strolling around the illuminated paths of the old fairytale garden.
Vesterbrogade 3, Cph V; opens Fri, closes Dec 31, not open Dec 24 & 25; Entrance: adults 95kr, under-sevens free adm; www.tivoli.dk

 

Tango con Carne
Turn up the heat on a chilly autumn afternoon with ‘Tango con Carne’ at LiteraturHaus. Bring a partner and try out both classical and ‘nuevo’ tango moves to experimental live music. If dancing to fiery South American rhythms doesn’t make you sweat, maybe a hot plate of homemade chilli con carne will do the job.

Cut down your own Christmas tree
At Rosendal Farm, you can pick and cut your own Christmas tree and also choose handmade decorations. Bring the kids: they are welcome to pet and feed the farm’s animals and ride ponies, while the parents, after the hard graft, can relax with a glass of gløgg or hot chocolate and some delicious seasonal æbleskiver.

Rasmus Klump’s birthday party
The iconic bear with the blue hat and the polka-dotted trousers is turning 61 and all your kids are invited to the celebration. Unfortunately Rasmus Klump won’t be able to join himself, but there will be lots of flags, balloons and – of course – stacks of pancakes.
