Christmas markets

Merry Christmas!

There are two main festivities celebrated in this city: Carnival and Christmas. The latter fills Düsseldorf with lights, markets and Christmas decorations. If you are visiting at this time of year (the markets start a month beforehand), do not miss a visit to the Town Hall Square, at the heart of Altstadt. Every last cobblestone of this Market place is covered with stalls selling all kinds of Christmas wares, as this city is well known for its artisanal tradition. Many locals wait all year to showcase their newest creations. The Christmas souvenirs and decorations here are truly unique, such as the Nutcracker. Don’t forget to sample a hot chocolate or a ‘Glühwein’, which is a warm, mulled wine that is typical to the area.
