Best Christmas Markets to Visit in Germany

Small towns and major cities alike across Germany compete to capture the Christmas spirit best. The following list is comprised of the most loved and most accessible German Christmas Markets that the country has to offer.

  • 1. Düsseldorf

    This western German city is home not just to one, but several Christmas markets. Top of the list is the Old Town Christmas Market, in the heart of the city. Thanks to the historical backdrop, visiting this Christmas market feels like going back in time, and the traditional craftsmen will be sure to offer you some unique souvenirs with medieval themes. Another great Christmas market is the one situated on Königsallee street. Towered by old chestnut trees, decorated with innumerable lights, this market invites visitors to sample the local Christmas sweets and pastries and do last-minute shopping in the boutique shops around.

  • 2. Berlin

    The city capital of Germany leads when it comes to Christmas markets. This city captures the senses with both savory and sweet traditional dishes, in kiosks designed especially for cold patrons. If you want an XXL portion of winter magic, head towards the Spandau Christmas market, the biggest in Berlin and one of the greatest German Christmas Markets. Apart from the expected festive goodies, this market offers great entertainment, with the „Christmas Meets Rock and Roll“ concert!

  • 3. Dresden

    As one of the oldest Christmas Markets in Germany, the expectations are high and the Dresden Christmas Market does not disappoint. Myriad twinkling lights, an impressive Christmas pyramid, choral music, and delicious smells all contribute to creating a true Christmas wonderland. The Dresden stollen, a traditional fruit cake, is also famous so make sure you sample it. You can even try to make your own during Stollenfest, a whole market day dedicated to this beloved cake.
