At the end of each year, Düsseldorf's Christmas Market, one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Germany, casts a spell on Düsseldorf's city centre and turns it into a unique experience for visitors.

The Christmas magic will be individually staged at seven locations simultaneously. In the city centre, artistically designed theme worlds invite visitors on a trip of exploration. Seasonally decorated huts will for four weeks turn the city into a winter's fairy tale for the whole family.

Christmas Market on Marktplatz
Düsseldorf's City Hall will be constituting a magical setting for the Christmas Market on Marktplatz. A Christmas market quarter will stretch across the square at the feet of the statue of mounted Jan Wellem – Düsseldorf’s landmark – with huts that will be modelled in colour and style on the brick building of the renaissance city hall situated at the heart of Düsseldorf's old town. Mulled wine and hot chocolate will invite guests to stay a while and craftsmen and craftswomen working with glass blowers and as wood turners will offer their wares here. And there’s more: the craftsmen and craftswomen will always be happy to demonstrate their skills to interested visitors. While on the square, a lovingly restored almost 100-year old merry-go-round will be the attraction for both young and old. Also, the hand-carved life-sized manger from the Bethlehem is always a major attraction.

Christmas Market on Flinger Straße
Flinger Straße will create the seasonal link between Marktplatz and Heinrich-Heine-Platz. The hut facades will be modelled on Düsseldorf’s old town houses to create a unique harmonious ensemble. The traditional mulled-wine pyramid located on the adjacent Heinrich-Heine-Platz will once again be a striking and popular meeting place.

"Sternchenmarkt" at Stadtbrückchen
The “Sternchenmarkt” (“Little Star Market”) at Stadtbrückchen, idyllically located in the courtyard of Wilhelm-Marx-Haus, is always popular with old and young. Crystals and sparkling stars that break the light into thousands of colours will immerse the courtyard in a mysterious light. A winter landscape to dream in!
