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.

The Essen Light Weeks create a magical atmosphere through the city centre. Many motifs bring light into the darkest period of winter and magnificent bright displays hang above the heads of people strolling by. The Christmas Market runs parallel for several weeks from mid November until Yuletide.
