The Fredriksdal Christmas market in Helsingborg

The Christmas market at the Fredriksdal  Museum and Gardens is a wonderful annual event in Helsingborg. The entire area is lit by thousands of candles and lights. Here you can buy some nice Christmas presents or delicacies for your Christmas table and listen to traditional Swedish Christmas music. Fredriksdal´s horses, pigs, goats, geese and other animals also seem to be in Christmas mood. Much to enjoy for the entire family!

Below are some pictures from yesterday, the opening day of this year´s Christmas market:
