Christmas Menu

Nielsen restaurant offers a real danish Christmas “hygge” during advent. The Christmas menu is comprised of danish smörrebröd (open-faced sandwiches), herring plates, and of course some sweet bites for dessert. Tuborg Julebryg, Aqvavit, Gammel Dansk, and homemade schnaps are also a vital part of the real danish Christmas hygge experience.

Open from 18:00 on these Fridays and Saturdays:

2. – 3. December
9. – 10. December
16. – 17. December
