Colourful hustle and bustle awaits you at the Christmas markets in Recklinghausen. From 22 November to 24 December (Christmas market on Rathausplatz until 6 January) you can choose from four different locations or simply visit all the markets - it's worth it. Each market has its individual charm and offers something unique.
The classic old town market
The classic can of course still be found in the historic centre of Recklinghausen: Artfully decorated stalls, numerous culinary delights, the exciting gift tree events on Advent Sundays and the Santa Claus procession will once again attract numerous visitors who are hungry for adventure. The many artisans also offer a wide range of creative gift ideas for your loved ones. It is also worth looking at the sky: A beautiful net of lights spans the entire old town market.
The historical market on the church square
Since 2016 there has also been a atmospheric Christmas market at St. Peter's Church. If you stroll through past times on the church square, you must take a look at the many lovingly decorated wooden huts. The pre-Christmas cultural programme invites also you to join in with its many offers. The experience is rounded off by a large variety of food and drinks.
Many attractions on the town hall square
On the town hall square, you will find action-packed and thrilling experiences. The Ferris wheel, from which you can enjoy a completely new view of the historic city centre and the Christmas market there, the covered ice rink and the Vest-Alm are just some of the special highlights that this Recklinghausen Christmas market can offer you.
For the children - Vest Palace
The city of Recklinghausen also has some special offers for your little ones on Christmas days. The stands at Vest Palace offer fun, games and a wide range of snacks. A nostalgic merry-go-round, a children's ice rink and Papa Clowni, who provides a extra good atmosphere every Thursday at 3 pm, are especially fun for children.
