The park, which is open to visitors on weekends in December until 22pm, lights up its dozens of trees with hundreds of small lights and offers delicious surprises and interesting gift ideas. In the main avenues of the park, in each wooden house, local artisans offer their products for sale.
Strolling in the Christmas market you can savor the Glogg, a hot wine similar to mulled wine, served with flakes of almond and raisins and often accompanied by Pepparkokar, spiced biscuits. The Glögg is the Christmas drink par excellence in Sweden and helps to warm up during the walk, as well as the various braziers located along the path of the flea market and around which they gladly exchange a few words with the other visitors.
