Aachen Christmas Market

It’s that time of year - the most wonderful time of the year when the Christmas market in Aachen opens its doors again! Voted one of the top 10 best Christmas markets in Europe, this edition will see over 130 vendors offering traditional Christmas decorations, treats and traditional workshops in a beautiful setting.

This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2G rule will apply across the whole Aachen Christmas market, meaning visitors aged 12 and over will be asked for proof that they are vaccinated or have recovered. Masks also need to be worn across the whole market. 

One of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Europe

Let yourself be enchanted by the beauty and splendour of the Christmas market in Aachen this holiday season. Festively decorated wooden stalls and lights fill the main city square around the cathedral and town hall, offering everything from mulled wine and marzipan, to handmade candles and dainty decorations.

Browse through wooden stalls of Christmas baubles and handicrafts, made by local artisans, while listening to some festive music. Or sample some of the regional specialities on offer, enjoy a local beer or two and envelop yourself in the full Christmas spirit. Fun for the family and kids is to be had at the Holzgraben Advent market, where visitors can try their hand at curling.
