Nowhere else in the country has so strongly held on to the old carnival traditions and rituals in Dragør and Store Magleby. Both Sunday and Monday brought together riders in the morning and ride with flags and music wagon at the head around all day on social calls in the city.
Every day up to Christmas, we gather under the lights of the Badstuevælen and walk to today’s “Living Door” – a window decorated by a family in the old town; They decide how they will decorate their window, what they want to show off and what they want to tell.
The visit ends with singing and possibly other entertainment – and sometimes we can even offer a little cake or have something hot to drink.
The whole scene takes about 20 minutes and it’s a wonderful way to enjoy the beautiful dusk and have a mouthful of winter air in a good company.
If you would like to see all the decorated windows, you can see a list of all the ‘doors’ visited at the Laura Ella store on Neels Torv.
Time and place
Every day 1 – 23 December at 17.00
On the 24th of December it is in the morning
Amager’s friendliest Christmas town is ready for Christmas again. Since the television calendar “Time Travel” in 2014, Dragør has been a real Christmas city. DR wanted as part of the calendar that there should be a Christmas market in the city. It did not exist at the time, but in a hectic cooperation between the elders, municipality and traders, it was possible to get twelve stalls on the legs.
Since then, the market has grown and the number of Christmas activities throughout the city has risen – so a weekend getaway to the small town at Øresund is a wonderful Christmas activity for the whole family.
“This year we have built two new stalls and there is a well-packed program all three weekends,” says Mark Rütt, chairman of the Association Christmas Treeers in Dragør, and continues: “I think you should have a visit here – so we promise that the Christmas atmosphere will be in place “.
Small, local and cozy stalls
Unlike the big Christmas markets in eg. Copenhagen focuses on small, local and cozy stalls, where you can have a good deal of their Christmas trade organized, and what is not available in the Christmas market can be found in Dragør’s many nice shops.
To be opened by the mayor on 2 December at 12 noon
The Christmas Market opens on 2 December at 12, where the string is cut over by the mayor who blows fanfare, the fast-paced riders meet up on their horses in full blast, and the Visen Friends sing.

The market closes at 17 o’clock, where Live Doors will be interested in a small walk from the sauna area and to a local Christmas-decorated window, where there may be a refreshment.
