Christmas time in Lappeenranta

Spend a relaxing Christmas and celebrate the New Year in Lappeenranta on the shores of Lake Saimaa! Christmas is a time of joy, relaxation, and celebration.
At the Market Square, the traditional Christmas Market offers fun for the whole family and brings a Christmas mood to the whole of Lappeenranta. At the Christmas Market, you can shop, enjoy the entertaining programme, and look forward to Christmas.
The Marianaukio Square, at the heart of the city, is home to the atmospheric Christmas World, where you can admire the abundantly decorated Christmas trees and take a peek at Santa’s elves toiling away in Santa’s workshop.

You can also have your picture taken in a Christmas setting with a Christmas-themed Lappeenranta photo frame. Christmas World also hosts events for children, and Santa himself has promised to pay a visit to the place! 

When you are on your way from the Christmas World to the Christmas Market, stop by at the Church Park to admire children’s UV light art that brings light to the darkness. 
There is also the enchanting fortress, with its museums, lovely little shops, and cafés. Check out the city’s event programme for upcoming events!
