Spent the day here as part of a Leger tour of Christmas markets. Was accompanied by my sister who is wheelchair bound. During the visit everyone was more than helpful. The shuttle bus driver from the coach centre to the market was very obliging and helpful as were the attendants in the market. On arriving the feeling was just magical... More

Really nice - full of Christmas cheer, good eats and warm Gluhwein! It was really busy - it was easier to get around to the different stands in the morning, but overall a lovely atmosphere and a good time!

Pleasantly surprised by the size of the Christmas Market and the variety of stalls, both decorations and food! If you only went to the Cathedral then yes, you will miss quite a few more, as they are dotted about the city centre. Definitely well worth a visit!

Lovely Christmas market. Lovely stalls with a wide variety of decorations and gifts. Despite a light rain, everything about it created a festive Christmassy ambience; the yummy glüwein, the decoration of the stalls, the Aachener printen (a kind of Lebküchen), the Christmas music. It's spread over several locations in the city so although it was busy, it never seemed too... More

I have heard a lot about the Christmas markets from my German fiancé and that Aachen was one of the popular ones. We were a little disappointed because we were expecting more vendors. The Christmas market was small but it was filled with all the essentials from gluwein, Christmas decorations and traditional German fast foods and desserts. We went at... More

We visited Aachen Christmas market on a Saturday. Great location in the historical centre mainly around the Dom and city hall. We liked the decoration and the atmosphere especially in the late afternoon. It is quite cosy. Very nice stand food and drinks. Highly recommended

Aachen Christmas market is fab. Small but it is packed with great food stalls offering traditional german foods, like bratwurst, fried potato cakes, garlic mushrooms and much more. The gluwein is a must and there is also plenty of german beers to choose for. Besides the lovely food and drink the stalls also have lovely christmas decorations and novelties with... More

Aachen. Christmas market is lovely. Although the articles they sell are a little on the expensive side there are some beautiful Christmas novelties. Plenty to eat, german sausages , garlic mushrooms , deep fried cauliflower in cheese sauce and a favourite of mine Green cabbage with met wurst and plenty other thing. Plus german beer and Glühwein.
