The unique atmosphere of a traditional German Christmas market is casting more and more visitors from all over the world under its spell every year. Historic Christmas Markets held in cities and smaller towns throughout the country are becoming increasingly popular, due to the enchanting festive season atmosphere they evoke.

The Christmas Market (Weihnactsmarkt) in Neuss is very traditional, cosy and well set on the Münsterplatz in the shadow of the Basilica. Take a break from hectic pre-Christmas shopping at one of the twenty or so stands selling artistic wares, tasty morsels and a variety of perfect individual gifts for friends and family.

A stage at the Christmas market offers a wide variety of entertainment while many pretty lights create a festive atmosphere.

Try too a tasty, piping hot Glühwein (mulled wine) against the cold. Or some delicious traditional bakes such as gingerbread.

Varied and beautiful, themed collections of Christmas market booths can be found across the centre of Düsseldorf. Traditional German gingerbread, marzipan, roasted chestnuts and mulled wine are on offer to tease the palate. Artisan crafts such as crib figures can also be seen.

The "Wheel of Vision" is an impressive structure placed on the Burgplatz next to both the Rhine promenade and the old town (Altstadt). Forty two capsules offer spectacular views across the river, the town as well as the Christmas markets and decorations during the dark evening hours.

Fortunately for expats, the Ruhr Metropolis reveals probably the highest density of Christmas markets in the world. A delightful, highly popular German tradition. A flying Santa, the world’s largest Christmas tree, woodland Christmas village, impressive illuminations and diverse events are highlights.
