About The Christmas market

6.-21. December 2019

Step into the fairy tale world of the Christmas Market i Trondheim, where thousands of twinkling lights, nostalgic wooden stalls, warm lavvos and a unique atmosphere awaits.

The Christmas Market this year is bigger than ever! For 16 days the city’s newly renovated town square will light up the December darkness.

When the magnificent Lavvo Café is starting to come together in the heart of the city, you know that Christmas is approaching. With ten large lavvos assembled in a spectacular fashion and seating for over 500 people, it´s become the center piece of the market. Soon it will be fuming smoke from the pipes and you can feel the heat of the fire and the smell of hot mulled wine. Come in and warm up, enjoy local food and drinks while being entertained by our troubadours.

The Christmas market is focused on supporting quality products made by award-winning and talented producers from Central Norway. Trøndelag is paradise for food enthusiasts. At the Christmas market you can find everything you would want for the food festivities during Christmas. In the farmer’s market tent you will find wild meat, Christmas jam, fish, honey, cheeses and fresh pastries. Feel free to chat with the manufacturer yourself and hear the story behind the product you are holding in your hand.

Outside in the market area Christmas decorations and tents in pleasant Christmas streets. Here you will find the unique Christmas gifts with character and soul. Norwegian crafts, products in wool, leather, glass and ceramics. Jewelery, homemade Christmas decorations, soaps and creams. If you want to enjoy yourself with something extra along the way, try freshly cooked stews, roasted almonds or freshly brewed coffee.

Over 100 cultural features on the program

The Christmas market is also the sight and sound of the many cultural elements. Something happens almost all the time, so even if you don’t plan to have a cultural experience, you can suddenly stand in the middle of one. The children’s theater makes the children laugh hard, and the troubadour in the corner of the Lavvo Café is the element that makes the experience with good friends complete.

If this doesn’t get you in the real Christmas mood, you can look for the horse coming up the Christmas street with ringing bells on the harness. Visit us and enjoy our beautiful and ornate Christmas Town from the sled.

The Christmas market in Trondheim was organized for the first time in 2003, with only 5 stalls. Today the market consists of over 100 exhibitors and 100 cultural events.
