Sweet Christmas smorgasbord

What's more Christmasy than the food we eat this holiday? Possibly Santa or the Christmas tree. The food really set the mood but that does not mean that everyone has the same favourite dishes, Blekinge offers a long line of genious restaurateurs who present lovely Christmas smorgasbords and dinners with a twist, in fantastic environments. You will find wild flavors, salmon and herring bonanza, vegeterian goodies, modern fusion as well as hyper-traditional dishes on their inspiring buffés and menues. Here's a selection of our very best Christmas tables.

Marvellous Christmas markets

A Christmas market is experienced with all five senses. This holiday season comes to you as scents and tastes, as atmospheric music and off course as visual impressions  the green, the red and all those sparkling lights. Whether Christmas glitters by default or not is a matter of taste. If you have a preference for simplicity and natural materials, you will find lots of that at Blekinge's Christmas markets. Crafts, locally produced goodies, plants, candles and food. Some are traditional, some more modern but everything is lovely, Christmasy and genuine.
