Inside the Christmas House in Akureyri the Christmas spirit rules every day, all year round.

 The Christmas Garden in Akureyri town in North Iceland is a magical place to visit. The little, red house looks like something out of a fairy-tale, with gigantic sweets decorating the roof and icicles hanging from the eaves. And as if that were not enough, a charming little wishing well for unborn children is to be found in a small hollow in the garden.  Sounds enchanting, right?

Inside the Christmas spirit rules every day, all year round. Hand-made Christmas ornaments, little tidbits of traditional Icelandic Christmas food and the Yule Lads are among just some of the things to be found in the Christmas House.
