Every year as we enter the month of December, Dragør transforms into a Christmas fairy tale for both adults and children. A Christmas market fills the streets selling anything the heart desires, creating a festive atmosphere with lovely Christmas decorations, twinkling lights and the smell of Christmas. The market originates from a children’s Christmas program called “Tidsrejsen”, which first aired a few years back and has since remained the primary inspiration for the annual Christmas market. The opening hours are from 12 am -17 pm on all weekends beginning from the 27th of November.
