Marktplatz and Engelchenmarkt
Glassblowers and cabinet makers, pure handicrafts
The capital of North Rhine-Westphalia hosts a major Christmas Market consisting of six separate markets in different squares in the old town in Düsseldorf. More than 250 wooden stalls located in different parts of the city. One of them is the Marktplatz in the most important square in the historic centre overlooking the Renaissance-style town hall. A wide range of stalls with numerous craftspeople such as glassblowers, cabinet makers and ironworkers. In front of the famous Musikpavillon, a masterpiece of art Nouveau, the magical Engelchenmarkt Christmas market is also known as the Angels’ Market. This Christmas market in Düsseldorf is located in Heinrich-Heine-Platz, and a mandatory stop to recharge your batteries with typical German cuisine or to savour a glass of spicy wine in the mulled-wine pyramid.
Sternchenmarkt, the little-star market
Christmas market at the Wilhelm-Marx-Haus in Stadtbrückchen
The brightness and jingle of glass stars create a magical Christmas atmosphere at the Sternchenmarkt market, also known as the little-star market, in Stadtbrückchen. In the courtyard of the historic Wilhelm-Marx-Haus, the lights float above visitors to create a unique winter ambience while the little ones climb aboard the magic roundabout. The stalls in this unique Christmas market in Düsseldorf offer Christmas decorations, gifts and food and drinks that are typical at this time of year. A great place for fun is the ice rink at the Plaza Gustaf-Gründgens market, before enjoying a cup of hot chocolate. If you prefer Christmas shopping, the Königsallee shopping district is full of stores and very crowded at Christmas.
