In the contemplative pre-Christmas period, would you like to sip a hot drink in the bitterly cold temperatures at the Christmas market and observe the hustle and bustle? Or would you prefer to amble from stall to stall – always on the lookout for a romantic gift for loved ones at home? Then you are well served at the Dortmund Christmas market. Because there are about 300 stands to marvel at at this large market with its twinkling lights. These offer you decorations for contemplative days, diverse craft products, and lovingly-made toys.
The imposing Christmas tree with romantic lighting
The imposing Christmas tree at the Dortmund Christmas market with its considerable height of 45 metres which looks over nearly all of the market area doesn’t only light up the eyes of children. A total of approximately 48,000 lights atmospherically illuminate the tree.
Enjoy spiced Glühwein from the distinctive Dortmund cups
The Dortmund Christmas market is also famous for its delicious Glühwein. So go to one of the quaint Glühwein stands – for example, the popular pyramid – and you can enjoy Glühwein or a hot chocolate with friends. Of course the cups at the Dortmund Christmas market have a new design this year with famous motifs from the cityscape of the Ruhr Metropolis.
