As one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Germany, Düsseldorf’s Christmas market casts a spell on the city centre and turns it into a unique experience for visitors.

The Christmas magic will be individually staged at six locations simultaneously:

Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz: Christmas fun is guaranteed in front of the Schauspielhaus, where a huge ice rink offers free skating once again..

Town Hall / Marktplatz: Just a magical setting! Metal smiths, glassblowers and candle makers offer their hand-made wares.

Engelchenmarkt (Little Angels Market) on Heinrich-Heine-Platz: The Engelchenmarkt is distinguished by its Art-Nouveau setting.

Flinger Straße (linking Marktplatz & Heinrich-Heine-Platz): Huts modeled after historic Düsseldorf town houses. The traditional Glühwein pyramid serving spiced hot wine has become a distinctive, popular meeting point over the years.

"Sternchenmarkt" at Stadtbrückchen Square: Giant crystals and sparkling stars on sky-blue stalls create a dreamy winter landscape.

Schadowplatz:: On Schadowplatz, visitors can experience a new highlight of the Düsseldorf christmas market: a wintry white Christmas village with the cosy and at the same time stylish flair of Scandinavia.
