Düsseldorf in the run-up to Christmas – the air is filled with the scent of roasted almonds and hot mulled wine. Many visitors have been coming to Düsseldorf for years to buy gifts for their loved ones and visit the spectacular Christmas markets. The splendid Christmas world is far more than just a Christmas market. There are a line-up of markets, all with different themes so when you take a stroll through the markets you will be astonished again and again by the imaginative designs of the huts and the huge variety of goods on offer. As well as this, Königsallee is world-famous as a luxury-shopping street. The department stores in Schadowstrasse and the Altstadt (Old Town) boutiques are just a stone’s throw away from the markets making it ideal to do some Christmas shopping whilst on holiday.Read more
Düsseldorf Christmas Markets
In Düsseldorf the markets are located all over town and each one is unique and worth exploring. Below you will find some information about each one and their location…
We would definitely start by discovering the markets of Altstadt (Old Town). The Christmas Market huts at the Altstadt Market are modelled on Düsseldorf’s old burgher houses. Between the Altstadt (Old Town) and Königsallee on Heinrich-Heine-Platz, the Engelchen Market has a broad spectrum of delicious culinary treats – from the traditional to the avant-garde – so dig in and try some.
The Märchen (Fairytale) Market is located between Schadowstraße and Königsallee. The Märchen Market is the ideal place to explore the enchanting world of German fairy tales. 15,000 LEDs bathe the square in a glowing, magical light – creating a fairy-tale world for all ages. The wooden silhouettes on the huts were produced from illustrations specially created by an artist.
Right in front of the Düsseldorf Rathaus (city hall), you will find the Handwerker Market on Marktplatz, at the foot of the equestrian statue of Jan Wellem, with its huts and kiosks whose colours and designs are modelled on those of the brick Renaissance-style Rathaus (city hall).
The Schadow Market is on one of Düsseldorf’s leading shopping streets, very close to the Schauspielhaus theatre and you’ll find virtually everything there, and something for every budget. As you walk past the festively decorated huts, you will also find lots of other shops that will fulfil just about every wish.
The Kö-Bogen Market has moved and, from 2021, will dazzle visitors on Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz. This area has changed more than any part of Düsseldorf in recent years. Known as Kö-Bogen II, it is a truly unique sight. This building not only improves the air quality in Düsseldorf, but also houses businesses, restaurants and cafés and it is Europe’s biggest greened façade. It has quickly become one of the city’s most photographed spots.
The Sternchen (Little Star) Markt is slightly hidden away in the inner courtyard of Wilhelm Marx House, between Heinrich-Heine-Platz and Kasernenstraße. This little market is a world of its own, far removed from the busy shopping streets. The dramatic lighting design, the snow-covered huts, and the countless crystals and glittering stars gives this area a distinctive winter feel.
