Düsseldorf Christmas Markets 2019
Location: Downtown Düsseldorf
A stroll through the Duesseldorf city centre during the pre-Christmas time is a wonderful experience. Unlike in other cities, the atmospheric Christmas market in Dusseldorf is not staged centrally as a large funfair, but rather individually at different locations in the lively city centre: On the market square in front of the historic Town Hall (Rathaus) a number of artisans present their goods in nostalgic stalls. One of them is a nativity carver from Bethlehem who produces life-size figurines from olive wood. At the Flinger Strasse, the Christmas wares on offer are hand-painted replicas of Duesseldorf town houses.
In addition to the magical atmosphere of the huts (“Hüttenzauber”) at the “Stadtbrueckchen” (Little City Bridge), the art-nouveau “Engelchenmarkt” (Angel’s Market) causes a stir at the Heinrich-Heine-Platz in the Old City. Since its first appearance last year, it is regarded as one of the most beautiful Christmas location.
