THE CHRISTMAS MARKET

Welcome to the traditional Christmas market in Trondheim.
A magical Christmas festival in the heart of Trondheim.

The Christmas Market in Trondheim takes place at the market square in December every year. Here you will find an exciting market with quality crafts, Christmas food and trees. Experience concerts, theatre and horse and sleigh rides. And in the lavvo you can enjoy local food and beverage by the fire, while listening to troubadours and folk tales.

Experience the beautiful blue hour, “den blå timen”. It gives everything outdoors a magical blue glow. Combined with the decorated stalls and thousands of small lights, it is like stepping into a Norwegian fairy tale.

QUOTES ABOUT THE CHRISTMAS MARKET

Streets glimmering with Christmas lights, a Christmas market that conveys the fragrances of holiday relaxation and coziness. A sprinkle of snow has finally made the setting perfect with the Christmas spirit you have longed for. It is almost like taking part in a fairy tale.” – Tone Sofie Aglen, Adresseavisen, the regional newspaper, with headquarters in Trondheim. Translated from the text “Byen i eventyret” (The town in the fairy tale).
Tone Sofie Aglen
If you wish to experience local customs and the warm, fuzzy feeling of Christmas celebration you´ve seen in the movies, a trip downtown during these days is very recommended." - Anders Påsche, The List.
Anders Påsche
The Christmas market in Trondheim has a marvellous atmosphere and lots of nice people. For me, The Christmas market is all about the food. I love The Farmer´s Market. I could easily visit This part of the market each of the ten days it is open for business. What I can´t find in my own store, I will find there. Kjersti Eriksen, Norli bookstore, Nordre gate.
