Aachen Christmas Market

This is one of our favorite Christmas markets, we keep going every year!

A short video is coming soon!

A part of the Christmas market is next to the Cathedral. There are market stalls where you can buy handmade gifts. There is also a covered area where you can eat something from the stalls there, good to know if the weather is not cooperating. There are many cafés and restaurants around too

The main Christmas market is in front of the Town Hall at the market square, with stalls where you can get gluhwein and hot chocolate. There is also a carousel for kids here. There are many cafés and restaurants around here as well, with our favorite being Barbarella (see post on Aachen for more places to eat)

The whole city is always lovely – and especially during this period!

See more on what to do in Aachen, including where to get great cupcakes and yummy Wurst! We love walking around the Cathedral in Aachen, having a café at the Market Square in front of the Townhall and visiting the zoo there. The Christmas market is also lovely!

The Aachen Zoo is a lovely little park with animals and playgrounds just 10 minutes from the center of Aachen! This is a rather small zoo – which makes it perfect for younger kids
