Santa Claus awakens in Varde square

Santa is sleeping in the old town hall on the square in Varde. Every year at the end of November, he is magically awakened when all the children shout at him!

In the town centre of Varde, the more than 300 Varde elves are waiting for Santa Claus to wake up. The elves are hanging everywhere in the city centre. Scandinavia’s largest Christmas hat – of 120 square metres – is in place on the old town hall spire.
