Kick start Christmas in the most idyllic way possible by visiting the traditional Christmas market at Katrinetorp. It’s on the outskirts of Malmö but there are regular buses for those without a car. The market stands and food are excellent, and everything, including the clothing of the staff, is inspired by Christmas in the 19th Century.
