Christmas Market Aachen

Next to fine food and of course the Cathedral Aachen is famous for its beautiful Christmas Market – It attracts 1.5 million people every year! This is due to the unique charm of the market located in the historic city center. Around the city hall, the Aachen cathedral and the Katschhof are dozens of Christmas decorated booths, which invite you to browse and linger. Beside sales booths for Christmas decoration (e.g. cookie cutters, tree decoration or light games), especially the mulled wine booths and the food stalls (sweet and hearty) are popular with everyone.

Interesting Facts:

  • The Aachen Christmas market took place already 47 times
  • The mascot the “Printenmann” is 6m tall
  • Mulled Wine is served best at a temperature of 65-75°C (you can try it at home)
