Christmas Market

Bielefeld’s Christmas Market is always a favourite destination!

Christmas Market | Alter Markt

More than 120 festively decorated half-timbered stalls add magic to Bielefeld’s city centre in the weeks before Christmas.

From trendy, sophisticated Jahnplatz with its little red houses and the twinkling light pyramid to the bustle of the old market place - Bielefeld’s Christmas Market has something to suit every taste and every age group. One of the many highlights: The rustic ”Haus vom Nikolaus” with warming open fire, snowmaker and ”Feuerzangenbowle”, a traditional German alcoholic drink for which a rum-soaked sugarloaf is set on fire and drips into mulled wine.

The colourful and varied choice of shops within the pedestrian precincts offers an ideal combination of presents, crafts and culinary delicacies, while a programme of choir singing, concerts, storytelling and much more evokes the spirit of Christmas.
