The history of the Christmas tree and green forest elves

December 08, 2023 at 11:00 - December 08, 2023 at 16:00

"The Christmas tree on a visit... greeting us from oak and beech" is a well-known Christmas carol. During the dark Christmas season, we gather in our living rooms with light and warmth to protect us from the winter cold - far away from nature. But how did nature end up penetrating the heart of Danish Christmas traditions?

Visit Naturkraft in November and December and travel through the history of the Christmas tree through the row of Christmas trees decorated with period Christmas decorations over the last 200 years. Also, take a tour of the park and listen to stories and hear how the West Jutland Christmas traditions are closely linked to the nature of West Jutland.

Christmas is a children's party, so of course there are also experiences for the kids, who can make their own Christmas tree lights, hunt for the green forest elves and make new Christmas decorations from old ornaments and recycled materials.

Get an overview of the experiences in Naturkraft in November and December here:

  • Learn the history of Christmas lights and make your own lights to put on the tree at home.

Fedt udført og et sjovt sted

Meget flot museum. Fedt udført og et sjovt sted med masser af små informationer til voksne og børn. Livets træ og vindmaskinen er et stort højdepunkt. Hunde er også tilladt, hvilket var rart for os alle.

En fantastisk mulighed for børn at lære om vands og vindens kredsløb. Det er værd at bruge en dag der.

Et skønt udflugtsmål

Et skønt udflugtsmål, hvor store og små kan hygge sig og tilegne sig viden på samme tid. Alt er så smukt vedligeholdt, stilfuldt og fornuftigt. Mad og drikkevarer i cafeen var fremragende.

Much to play and discover

A beautifully landscaped area, there is a lot to play and discover outside. The exhibits in the main building are interesting and child-friendly. The additional offers are also diverse and carefully planned. The staff was always nice and helpful. We will gladly come back!

Great hands-on museum

Great hands-on museum for young and old on the subject of energy from sun, wind and water. Large adventure outdoor area with many stations. Inside there are many play corners and animated installations. Friendly staff. Suitable for small children. We were thrilled!

A must in any holiday calendar

Very nice, explains the connections in nature for young and old. The influence of man on the environment, the processes in nature - how everything inevitably interconnected and is dependent on each other. A must in any holiday calendar.

Very, very nice

Very, very nice. A rather small area but has a lot to offer. And it actually appeals to all age groups. We were there with our 13 year old son and had a very, very pleasant morning. The fact that our dog was allowed to go with us everywhere topped it all off.

Would happily return

Super interesting park, lots of fun for young and old, active and varied. 3 1/2 hours was not enough for everything, so take your time, there is also the possibility of picnics on site. Highly recommended, worth every penny and would happily return!
