Christmas Market in Düsseldorf

Christmas music, handicrafts and loads of fun for children – our magnificent Christmas world is more than just a Christmas market. It comprises seven different themed markets all of which are within walking distance of each other. And there are other attractions too such as the Dome of Lights on Königsallee, the ice rink on Corneliusplatz or the Big Wheel on Burgplatz all decked out in festive lights.


  • Extended run: for the first time, the Düsseldorf Christmas Market will also be open after Christmas – until Saturday, 30 December.
  • Magic sky & live music: A spectacular roofing system is being installed on Jan-Wellem-Platz: our new meeting point for live music and Christmas carols.
  • Fairytale Market & Children’s Programme: Schadowplatz will be transformed into a fairytale market; the Children’s Activity Tent is on Jan-Wellem-Platz.
  • A further attraction: the ice rink – opening at the same time as the Christmas Market, the DEG Winter World by Oscar Bruch Jr., will be located on Corneliusplatz. The 1,700-square-metre rink means ice-skating fun against the breathtaking backdrop of Königsallee.

All details of the Christmas Market are shown in our Christmas Market brochure.
