Christmas Market 4th December

Old-fashioned Christmas market in Ladan by Nordens Ark's hotel. Nordens Ark's Christmas market is an annual tradition. Come and take part in the holiday spirit in and around the Barn as you stroll around among the exhibitors. Here you will find plenty for the Christmas table from nearby food producers and classic crafts, honey, textiles, handicrafts and much more.

Father and Mother Christmas come to visit and the choir Gospel of Joy sings atmospheric Christmas carols, and for those who want to do something out of the ordinary, there is the opportunity to take a cozy ride with horse and carriage.

Should you get hungry, we have a food tent where you can buy freshly baked flatbread and grilled food. We have coffee, sandwiches and lunch in the hotel restaurant and for those who only want a small fika we have mulled wine and traditional Swedish saffron buns for sale in the barn.

There is free admission and parking to the Christmas market.

Please note that since there are many exhibitors indoors in the Barn, remember to keep your distance, follow the direction of the arrows on the floor and act carefully to reduce the spread of infection.
