Christmas and adventure at Gram Castle

Meet the elves at the castle, visit the Christmas market and come to fantastic Christmas concerts

Christmas market, pranksters & Christmas concerts

Following two years without a Christmas market, everyone at Gram Slot Castle is looking forward to welcoming the crowds back to a Christmas event that breaks with tradition. The team tweaks the mix to coax a cosy Christmas atmosphere to the fore. The castle itself will be the central venue for Gram Slot Castle’s Christmas festivities. 


  • Christmas market in the Barn – handicrafts and Christmas treats
  • A Christmas-clad fairy-tale castle with lots of mischievous elves

Visitors are invited to explore the corridors and chambers of the castle. Watch out, the Christmas spirit will grab you when you least expect it! The castle will be decorated from attic to cellar. On Saturday and Sunday, lively elves (actors) will entertain as they prepare for their Christmas festivities. We apologise in advance for our mischievous elves. Now and again, they may be tempted to tease our visitors! 

If you visit the castle on Thursday and Friday, the Christmas elves will be eating their traditional Danish rice pudding with the cattle. The elves will not be present at the castle.
