Holiday Special - A Danish Christmas



Frilandsmuseet - Open Air Museum, Copenhagen, Denmark
40 mins

About the tour

Get your wellies on and come for a festive walk around the oldest and largest open-air museum in the world. Heather will be looking for the spirit of Christmas past in some of the 100 buildings which were moved here piece by piece from the Danish countryside. Some of them date all the way back to 1650. You can expect rustic charm, naughty nisser (elves) open air theatre, traditional Christmas food and drink, Christmas trees, clogs and flickering candlelight.

Meet your local guide


We call Heather a guide but she has so many skills it feels like a single label isn't enough. It’d be more accurate to call her a guide, storyteller, journalist, artist, historian and novelist. But then that would be a long title… Packing her personality and the colourful history of Denmark all into one live-stream can only mean a boatful of fun and entertainment. Join her as she shares her love of Copenhagen and her infectious humour with you!

Heather has been guiding since Jul 2012

The tour will last about 40 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Copenhagen. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

Heather was a wonderful tour guide. She informed us that new COVID restrictions had been recently implemented, which were changing her original plan a bit. Nonetheless, Heather made the tour festive and enjoyable.
