Christmas markets in Copenhagen

I spent the weekend in Copenhagen, enduring cold weather and rain showers to explore a lot of Christmas markets littered around the city.

There’s an unusual amount of markets in the city and it’s inevitable to stumble upon one after the another. The usual stuff is readily available, such as Æbleskiver, fudge and cured meats. As well as the occasional Gløgg and Julebrygd.
