December is here, and if you already have your traditional Christmas activities marked down in your calendar, then it might be time to look a bit around for new stuff to do. Copenhagen offers a number of alternative Christmas activities, a bit different form the usual stuff. Waoct has collected four ideas on how to enjoy Christmas with fun and alternative Christmas activities.

Alternative Christmas activities: Are you up for less traditional experiences during Christmas?

Islandsbrygge Winter Bathing

Do you tend to be a bit too relaxed during Christmas and stay too much indoors in the warm comfort or your home? If yes, take a look at Islandsbrygge Winter Bathing. Every Sunday in December, you have the opportunity to join the winter swimmers in the harbour at Islandsbrygge. After having jumped into the cold and refreshing water, you can run into the warm and cosy sauna. This fun winter bathing takes place between 13.00 and 16.00. Read more here....

Kayak Republic
Do not miss this year's perhaps most beautiful Lucia parade in Copenhagen's canals. Kayak Republic has arranged decorated kayaks and beautiful Christmas singing in the canals at Christianshavn, Nyhavn and Højbro Square. Last year, 350 kayaks filled the channels with Christmas singing and great Christmas spirit, and this year, they repeat this great success. Get ready for a good Christmas mood on December 13th.

Every day in December, a cultural Christmas activity takes place somewhere in Nørrebro.

Copenhagen Santa Fun Run
If you are in a real Christmas mood and would like to contribute to a good Christmas atmosphere, you must attend the Copenhagen Santa Fun Run. In the park, Fælledparken in Copenhagen, on December 10th, a nice and fun Christmas run will be held. The event supports the SMIL Foundation and provides Christmas presents for children at the hospital, Rigshospitalet. The run is a real Christmas race, as you will make the run wearing a Christmas gnome costume and cap. Read more here....
