Christmas Market Essen

International Christmas Market Essen

13th November to 23rd December 2020

Best Christmas City – this title was awarded to Essen thanks to its International Christmas Market. And rightly so! That’s because when the gates to the market are opened from 13 November to 23 December, a special sort of Christmas magic spreads throughout the city centre that is unlike any other. You can expect an international range of products at the nearly 240 lovingly designed stands – from Poland to Peru and Hungary to the USA. But with all the exotic products and culinary delicacies, we mustn’t forget the traditional Christmas gifts!

The International Christmas Market is unique in Germany thanks to its sparkling lights. On all the city’s squares and streets you will be surrounded by atmospheric illuminations which point you in the right direction and get you in the mode for the most wonderful time of the year.

13 November – 23 December 2020
daily from 11am to 9pm
