Inter­national Christ­mas Market Essen

The pre-Christmas magic

Essen makes Christmas dreams come true

12 November until 23 December 2021

The scent of roasted almonds, potato pancakes and mulled wine fills the icy air. The squares and shopping streets of Essen's city centre are aglow with lights. Welcome to the International Christmas Market Essen! With around 250 stalls, it is one of the largest Christmas markets in Germany and has won several awards for its diversity and beauty. Spread throughout the city centre, the huts stand under a sea of twinkling lights - an atmosphere that makes a visit contemplative and dreamlike.
