Christmas markets on Bornholm

In the middle of the Baltic Sea, Bornholm lights up as a crunchy, sparkling and jolly Christmas island that invites you to plenty of Christmas "hygge" and a relaxing atmosphere during a time that for many can be busy and stressful. Unplug for a few days and let the Christmas spirit sink in with a trip to Bornholm in the weekends leading up to Christmas, where the island's Christmas markets invites you to a true Danish "hygge", warmth and a sea of local Christmas delicacies. 

At the cosy Christmas markets in Tejn and Nexø you can taste, buy and small the best of Bornholm, when local artisans, food producers and other creatives sell their products in small stalls and huts. Shop this year's Christmas gifts or treat yourself with everything from locally produced chocolate, licorice and schnapps to jewellery, glass art and ceramics - and everything in between.

Smedjen in Tejn

At the harbour in Tejn you will find Smedjen, a brand new meeting point for local creatives selling their products in Smedjen's small stalls. Smedjen opened in 2022 and has since then become a gateway for both locals and visitors of the island who want to explore local products and enjoy delicious streetfood in the old industrial building. 

For the second year in a row, the stall holders and Smedjen's owners, Tue and Jakob, transform the raw building into a sparkling, bright and bubbly indoor Christmas market, where local artisans, food producers and other creatives with roots in Bornholm fill the many stalls with Bornholm products of all kinds.

You will find i.a. local jewelry makers, ceramicists, wood workers, beekeepers and textile artists but also local historians who share their knowledge of Tejn and the surrounding area. In Smedjen's own bar, Bisselinebar, you can enjoy a warm cup of mulled wine and æbleskiver (traditional Danish pancake puffs) or you can satisfy a slightly bigger hunger in Smedjen's selection of street food stalls.

Bornholms Christmas Market in Nexø

For the second year in a row, the cosy harbour town, Nexø, is transformed into a colourful Christmas town when Bornholms Julemarked (Bornholms Christmas Market) invites locals and visitors to true Christmas fun. At the harbour you will find small, wooden stalls where local artists and producers sell their products, while the small shops in the inner town are decorated and open for cosy Christmas shopping. 

Bornholms Julemarked is Bornholm's largest Christmas market and here you can shop this year's Christmas gifts and decorations or just treat yourself to local products such as jewellery, woolen clothing and glass art as well as locally produced chocolate, beer, butcher's and smoked products, licorice and schnapps - just to name a few of the delicious things you can buy from this year's Christmas market. 

You can of course also satisfy your hunger at the Christmas market's food stalls, which offers warm æbleskiver (traditional Danish pancake puffs), juicy roast port sandwiches and tasty burgers.
