Living Christmas Calender in Old Town

Old Town's Living Christmas Calendar

Arranged by Mäster Olofsgården since 2005.

Old Town | Dec 1 - 24, 2021
A nice tradition in the Old Town where from 1 to 24 December you open a door every day at 18.15. (On Christmas Eve, the 24th door opens at 11.30). To know where to open today's door, a banner is hung in a window that says "here the door opens". A fun way to discover the Old Town. The hatch openings begin with a fanfare and then a piece of music and a poem or story are performed. This year, of course, with adjustments to the current situation.
