Rheinland-Palatinate, Trier
One of the most stunning Christmas markets is arranged in Trier, the oldest city in Germany, from November 11 to December 22, 2022. Daily events for visitors include everything from historical puppet theatre to celebrity tenors or figures from the local music industry. The magnificent cathedral in Trier’s Old City serves as the ideal backdrop for the quaint community of holiday booths. The “Mulled Wine Queen,” who reigns over the festive season, also resides in Trier.

Schleswig-Holstein, Lübeck
Take in the crisp winter air together with the aromas of roasted almonds, fried pastries, and mulled wine as you meander through the shops surrounding Lübeck’s Town Hall. Within the Lübeck UNESCO World Heritage Site, this Christmas market has a lengthy history. Today’s colourful pre-Christmas festivities at the market, which is open until December 30, 2022, are perfectly complemented by the historic structures – first documented in records going back to 1648.

Görlitz, Saxony
Special church services are held in Görlitz’s Silesian Christmas Market to serve as a reminder of the true meaning of Christmas. It encourages people to sing traditional Christmas carols, and the neighbourhood choirs frequently sing there as well, adding to the festive ambiance. Nearly 100 merchants and artisans are selling their wares among gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque trading houses, all of which are surrounded by the aromas of incense, almonds, and spices.

Baden-Baden, Baden-Würrtemberg
If Christmas is all you can think about, live performances are available at the market in Baden-Baden, which is open until January 6th. Here, amid the Black Forest’s outskirts, is where Christmas fantasies come true. Enjoy the wide range of market stalls, the enchanted fairytale street, the carousel and miniature ferris wheel, the extraordinary gourmet igloos, and much more.

Dresdner Striezelmarkt, Dresden
With roots going all the way back to 1434, the Dresdner Striezelmarkt is the original authentic Christmas market in the world. The largest step pyramid in the world and a Ferris wheel with a view of the market are among the more than 200 stalls and other noteworthy attractions. It is understandable why the Dresdner Striezelmarkt draws up to three million visitors each year. The Stollen Festival, the Pyramid Festival, a sizable Christmas carousel, and the largest nutcracker in the world are some of the highlights of Dresden’s famous Christmas Market. Foodies are given for choice with a variety of Saxon culinary delights, and twinkling lights add to the beautiful scene.

Leipziger Weihnachtsmarkt, Leipzig
Less than 24 years after the Dresden Striezelmarkt, the Leipziger Weihnachtsmarkt first opened its doors. The second-oldest Christmas market in Germany is held in Leipzig, which takes pride in this distinction. The market, which lies outside the Old Town Hall in Leipzig’s historical core, welcomes guests with more than 250 exquisitely decorated kiosks brimming with wonderful Christmas presents. The location is usually enchanting, brimming with fascinating traditions, a rich history, and culture. You’ll enjoy your trip even more with all the delectable German cuisine. By performing holiday performances and filling the air with trumpet fanfares, the renowned St. Thomas Boys Choir makes sure that the atmosphere is always merry.
