Please note:

  • Below is a list of some of the major Christmas Markets in NRW. They’re in alphabetical order by city. They link to a general page which often lists other, smaller markets in the vicinity. Many cities have multiple markets near each other that run the duration of the season and smaller markets in other areas of town that run a weekend or two.
  • Totensonntag is on 22 November 2015. Many markets are either closed or run reduced hours. Check the schedule.
  • Markets also tend to run different hours over the weekend as opposed to the weekdays. Double check your times.
  • This year several markets are open past Christmas Day. They will still be closed or have reduced hours between 24-26 December, so double check before making plans.
