Kulturen in Lund kicks off the winter season with a Christmas fair stretching over three days.

The Christmas fair launches on Friday evening, inviting you to stroll through the museum grounds as they are lit by lanterns, firebaskets and twinkling fairy lights. Traders both inside and out in the museum grounds tempt you with seasonal delicacies such as cheese, sausages and herring and offer an array of unique Christmas gifts such as jewellery, knitwear and ceramics.

Grill your own hotdog, pick up some tasty warm food or a cup of mulled wine and watch as the St Lucia procession passes or listen to some live music. In a couple of our historical houses you can warm yourself by the fire and hear about past Christmas preparations.

The fair continues on Saturday and Sunday with even more festive activities. Don’t miss our historical characters as they tell you all about Christmas as it was then in the open-air museum’s historical houses. Food and refreshments are available from stands selling warm food and mulled wine.

For those who want more there’s Christmas crafting in our workshop, live music and a St Lucia procession, demonstrations of marzipan modelling, the opportunity to buy a personalised ginger snap and much more. Children are welcome to visit Santa Claus and hand in their Christmas wishlist.

Our exhibitions and historic houses are also open!

Saturday 30 November & Sunday 1 December 2019, 11 AM–5 PM both days

Admission: Free for members and visitors 0–18 years. Students 65 SEK, pensioners 100 SEK, Adults 130 SEK.
