I have kick-started the Christmas season by visiting the annual Christmas market at Møntegården in Odense. 

The beautiful yard smells like candied apples, roasted almonds and gløgg. A horse carriage is passing through the narrow old streets and the street musicians are performing a Christmas song.

Though the cold is biting the cheeks, many came to visit the marketplace with traders dressed in 19th century clothes, musicians, puppet shows and old-fashioned Christmas decorations. More of the 19th-century Christmas atmosphere at Møntergaarden in the pictures:

Møntergården is a cultural history museum in Odense. Those half-timbered houses and narrow paths is definitely a must see!
