Oslo does Christmas in its own koselig (cozy) way. Throughout Juletid, aka the Christmas period, Oslo and the cities around the region lights up and offers children of all ages some of that holiday magic. From seasonal treats and gifts to buy at the Christmas markets to cool events that cater to the hipster crowd, this is how to do Christmas in Oslo. God Jul!

We have organized the various Christmas markets by city (after Oslo it is alphabetical) and sorted by opening date.

Check out the various markets to find unique Christmas gifts 🎁, get enchanted by the Christmas lights 💡, smells, and spirit. Test out Gløgg ☕ (is a spiced, usually alcoholic) and have some Pepperkake 🍪 (ginger bread cookies).

Enjoy! 🎄

Did you know you will find Santa in Drøbak?

Fun fact: Drobak is the only place in Norway where the Norwegian government allows for a special street sign of Santa. And make sure you visit Santa's cousin down at the Tourist Information Office by the main harbor. There you may send a letter to Stana, and the walls of the office are completely covered by Christmas cards and letters from children across the world.
Don't miss out on Santa in Drøbak!
