The German National Tourist Office (GNTO) India is excited about the highly anticipated Christmas markets in Germany to Indian travellers this winter.

With a focus on sustainability and unique experiences, Germany offers a perfect destination for Indians seeking a memorable holiday season.

Christmas markets are an integral part of German culture during the festive season. They provide a magical atmosphere, where visitors can explore beautifully decorated stalls, indulge in traditional food and beverages, and purchase unique handcrafted gifts in cities such as Berlin, Munich, Cologne, and Frankfurt, among others.

This year Germany is quickening its journey towards sustainability and aims to implement sustainable practices as well as to promote locally sourced, organic goods. Visitors can also venture beyond the festive villages to experience a winter wonderland committed to eco-friendly enjoyment, featuring serene snow walks, spirited torchlight hikes, and the warmth of shared Christmas traditions.

Romit Theophilus, Director, of the German National Tourist Office in India, highlighted the significance of Christmas markets in Germany and encouraged Indian travellers to visit during the winter season and beyond. He said, “Germany’s Christmas markets are a true representation of German tradition and culture. The festive atmosphere, the aroma of mulled wine and gingerbread, and the beautifully lit streets create an unforgettable experience. We invite Indian travellers to explore these markets and immerse themselves in the rich history and traditions of Germany.”

Theophilus also added “In addition to promoting the Christmas markets, GNTO India is actively promoting sustainable initiatives that take place during the festive period. Germany is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and offers various sustainable options for travellers. From eco-friendly accommodation to public transportation and local produce, the country aims to provide an environmentally conscious travel experience. “

Some of the well-known Christmas markets in Germany happen in its most popular cities. The Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt (December 1-24) in Nuremberg is known for lebkuchen (gingerbread) and hosts more than 200 local businesses throughout, while Berlin’s WeihnachtsZauber (November 27 to December 31) is held at the picturesque Gendarmenmarkt. Stuttgart’s Wintertraum Markt (November 29 to December 23) is known for its fairy-tale appeal located on the Schlossplatz, right in front of the palace, while Munich’s Christmas Market (November 27 to December 24) takes place in the scenic Marienplatz with a Christmas tree adorned with 2,500 lights. In Cologne, Heinzels Wintermärchen (November 27 to December 24) is set right outside the city’s gothic cathedral and has two sections, the old market and new market, the latter’s highlight being a huge outdoor ice rink. Lastly, the International Christmas Market in Essen (November 17 to December 23) is adorned with twinkling fairy lights, fairground rides, and crafty products from lands as far away as Peru and Brazil.

Germany, with its wintry climes and Christmas markets, is a globally popular go-to destination at this time of year. Now, as the festive season approaches, the country is inviting travellers from across India to visit and experience its myriad attractions amid scenes of Saint Nikolaus and snowflakes.
