Christmas market in Bergen

Bergen is a great place to celebrate Christmas, with its unique traditions and world-famous cultural stage.

The Christmas market is located at Festplassen, right in the city’s heart. You’ll find the traditional Ferris wheel and horse carousel, a giant Christmas tree, and a unique holiday atmosphere.

The popular stalls from previous seasons will be there, waiting for you to visit.

Christmas market in Lillehammer

Lillehammer is a safe bet if you dream of a snow-covered winter wonderland. The quaint city by Lake Mjøsa is about an hour and a half by train from Oslo Airport.

Discover how Christmas was celebrated in the Middle Ages at the Maihaugen open-air museum – which hosts a festive Christmas market on the first weekend of Advent.

A visit to the arts and crafts at the creative hub Fabrikken is a must, and you should also stop by the Lillehammer Art Museum. Afterward, you can find the perfect Christmas gifts in the city’s festively decorated streets.

If you want to get active in the snow, combine your trip to Lillehammer with a day or two in one of the nearby top-notch ski resorts, Hafjell and Kvitfjell, usually open from November. You might also be brave enough to try the bob and luge track used at the 1994 Winter Olympics – and if not, you can take the chair lift to the top of the Lysegårdsbakkene ski jump for a fantastic view.

Norsk Folk Museum’s annual Christmas fair

One of Norway’s most famous Christmas markets is Norsk Folkemuseum’s annual Christmas fair, and understandably so.

At the open-air museum in Oslo, visitors can buy Christmas gifts from over a hundred stalls as they wander through a historical retelling of Christmases decades and centuries past.
The whole museum is decorated in line with various customs and eras, allowing you to experience anything from Christmas Eve in a fancy merchant’s home in 1769 to the home of a rural Norwegian family in 1959.
