On the 25th of November, Musikkens Hus in Aalborg will transform into an adventurous Christmas universe with live Christmas music, Christmas decorations, ballet, Christmas crafts and magical guided tours, including a visit with Bit Vejle from the Museum of Paper Art.

Children and adults can cultivate their inner creativity by crafting sustainable Christmas decorations from old music paper while listening to Christmas stories and music.

A living Christmas fairytale 

Musikkens Hus, Aalborg Symphony Orchestra and the Museum of Paper Art open their doors to a living Christmas fairytale. It will be full of wonder, harp music, ballet and Christmas crafts. There is something for everyone to create and enjoy.

Starting the 25th of November, every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, children and adults can put reality on hold and step into a world full of enchantment as Musikkens Hus provides the perfect setting for true Christmas magic.

In collaboration with the Museum of Paper Art, as part of the exhibition, children and adults will be drawn into the world-famous psaligrapher Bit Vejle’s universe with Ballerina Bulldog. Bit Vejle teaches children and young people to be themselves and stand up for who they are – also on social media.

During the magical Christmas tours, guests will experience a real Christmas adventure with tales from “The illuminated lantern man,” “The dancing ballerina,” and “Her living bulldog.”

The finale of the Christmas adventure can be sharing  “æbleskiver” (not apple slices, but a light and fluffy danish Christmas dessert) and mulled wine with the family at Musikkens Hus’ restaurant Faun.

From the 25th of November and until the 19th of December, there will be Christmas tours every Thursday at 16:30 and 18:30, Saturday at 11:00 and 13:00 and Sunday at 10:00. Tours are around 75-90 minutes and cost 120kr for children and 170kr for adults.
