Trick or Treat Halloween in Copenhagen
Trick or Treat? Here's Halloween in Copenhagen
What are your plans this fright night? Here in Copenhagen we have the traditional celebrations, parties at Tivoli and around town, and of course the Copenhagen Downtown Hostel Halloween Party - it's to die for!!
Now that Autumn is here and the night are getting longer, we're gearing up to celebrate all things spooky as the halloween season is upon us!! Denmark grows lots of pumpkins so you will see plenty of homes with carved and decorated pumpkins in the windows. Find out about traditional Danish celebrations and how to party Copenhagen Downtown style!
Traditional Danish Halloween Celebrations
While around the world lots of little kids will be dressed up and asking their neighbours for 'trick or treat' on October 31st - in Denmark this actually takes place on Martinmas Eve before Saint Martins Day on November 11th (although we're sure there will be some little witches and monsters still). Originally the celebration of Halloween was for lighting candles on graves and remembering those who had died, and All Saints Day (1st November) was a holiday around Europe. Now Halloween has become an excuse to dress up in devilish costumes and enjoy a fright fest in Denmark too! The Martinmas Eve tradition remains with children wearing masks and carrying paper lanterns as they trick or treat and ask their neighbours for candy or tangerines.
Tivoli Park's Pumpkin Patch
Tivoli is the heart of all things 'hygge' as they decorate the amusement park for halloween. You have to pay to enter but there is plenty to see here along with the rides, restaurants and market stalls including different events taking place each day. This is the most impressive place to see all the halloween pumpkins as they decorate the park for three weeks and there are over 20,000 pumkins here! There are not many places where you can see that!
Tivoli's Halloween Monster's Night Out
If you want to see a whole host of spooky characters then the Monster's Night Out is the place to see all the freaks together!! This is a line up of all things frightening and a chance to check out the costumes on display.For the really daring check out the haunted roller-coaster and prepare to be spooked as you fly up and down. If you go in the evening, be sure to head to the lake and be dazzled by music, smoke, fire and laser displays. Experience Halloween in Tivoli every day from 9 October – 1 November 2018.
