Münster Christmas Market

27th November 2017 - 23rd December 2017

Five Münster Christmas markets open their gates every year in Münster's Old Town. At Christmas, the aroma of mulled wine and roasted almonds meanders through the city's streets and shops which are wonderfully decorated with festive illuminations. Christmas time turns Münster's Old Town into a winter fairy tale.

On the inner courtyard of the Town Hall, at the bottom of Lamberti church, stands a 22-metre high Christmas tree, around the monument of Münster's Kiepenkerl. Whilst at the Aegidii market, quaint little stalls combine indulgence with tradition to offer culinary delights and delicacies. Set against the historic walls of 'Überwasserkirche' Church, you will find a wide range of regional arts and crafts.

The Münster Christmas Market is the perfect destination for romantic couples. Under the spectacular backlit sky is where one of the most iconic Christmas markets in Germany can be found. Handmade jewellery and culinary items of all kinds are available from the many market stalls and stands in and around one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany.

Münster city breaks are the perfect option for romantic holidays and weekend breaks in this glorious city.
