Maihaugen's Christmas Market
This year's Christmas market is over. You are welcome to visit our Christmas market the first weekend of Advent in 2024!
At Maihaugen's Christmas Market you will get the good, old Christmas feeling in beautiful historical surroundings.
The Christmas market offers Christmas shopping, Christmas decorated houses from different eras, and activities for the whole family.
At the Christmas Market you will find a wide selection of stalls with Norwegian craft and home craft products, local food and Christmas decorations. These are high quality products perfect to bring home. Here you can find the special Christmas gifts.
Christmas decorated houses
A unique feature of Maihaugen's Christmas market is that you may experience how Christmas was celebrated in the past. The lights are lit in the historic houses from the Middle Ages up until today.
Activities for the whole family
There are many fun activities for children, such as gingerbread baking, visiting the animals in the barn, various Christmas workshops, sleigh rides and pony rides.
Musicians sing and play Christmas songs around in the museum.
In the visitor center you can see Maihaugen's Christmas tree, which is decorated every year by an artist or designer.
We recommend being here at dusk. The atmosphere when the lanterns are lit is very special.
