Life in Odense: Christmas at Møntegården

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:


I have also met with Evija, the owner and creator of Divas-Divas.


Cornelia from Curly C Colours is also present at the Christmas market.


Flæskesvær - crunchy deep fried pork rind is a famous Danish snack.

Be awesome! Let others know about it:
