Christmas Markets in Gothenburg & Malmö

Enjoy the charming Swedish cities of Gothenburg & Malmö, when they dress up for Christmas. A uniquely Swedish combination of ancient Nordic traditions and modern customs.

Christmas city Gothenburg, one of Scandinavia’s most famous Christmas destinations, takes place between November 29 and January 6. Already from mid-November, you can experience the Swedish Christmas markets with their delicacies and local products.


To visit a Christmas market is fun and an excellent way to get into the Christmas spirit; Swedish Christmas food is tasty, hearty and easy to love. Sweden is a large country and there are many local varieties.


The number one reason to enjoy a Christmas dinner in Gothenburg is the fish and shellfish. In addition to the compulsory gravid lax, you will find beautiful crayfish, shrimp and many more Gothenburg specialities.

Ovation Sweden DMC has created programs suitable for incentive groups and add-on programs to conferences.


Our guides are culinary professionals and will take your groups on exciting tours behind the scenes, do special tastings of the local products and visit microbreweries.

We will inspire you with new flavours and ingredients like pickled herring, cured ham, cloudberry jam and chocolate from small producers. We take you further and try spruce tips, pickled rosehips, ramson capers – expect the unexpected.


If you would like to move further inland, you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings and XVIII century buildings.


There are charming castles located in the forests, ideally for groups up to 100 persons with excellent facilities and winter team building activities. They include cross-country ski lessons, Viking games, a shepherd for a day and cooking classes of traditional and modern buns, biscuits and cakes, liquorice, handmade candy.


Extra tips: Malmö can easily be combined with the Danish capital Copenhagen with only 15 minutes train ride in-between.
