Our first visit was on a drippy evening after a long day driving. We were not impressed but figured we were just too tired to appreciate it. So we went back the next day. There were lots of gluh wein stands and lots of sausages. There were lots fried foods with flour, which we don't eat. What was missing were... More

The old Hanseatic town is always worth a visit - especially in the month before Christmas when the town can boast of one of the most famous Christmas Markets in Northern Germany. The inner city is filled with lights, decorations, and temptations of all sorts: Sweets, cakes, and Glühwein, handmade toys and Christmas decorations, the Niederegger shop with the famous... More

The Christmas Market in Lübeck is absolutely magical. People celebrating the season are only outnumbered by the Christmas lights. There is a friendly and pleasant atmosphere throughout the old town and a great deal to see, do and taste. The Christmas treats and wares are really special and young and old cannot help but be taken in by the festive... More

The christmas market in Lubeck is one of the best in northern Germany. It is traditionally on the "Rathausplatz" in the city center. If you are in the area, try to take public transportation as parking in the city center is challenging. If you have to take the car, you can park at the MuK (Musik und Kongresshalle) and from...

I have been to Cologne Christmas Market on several occassions with my family. This year my son and I visited Ratzeburg and thought we would visit Lubeck. We were not disappointed, plenty of variety and plenty of stalls down side streets etc.. Will definitely be taking my other kids in the coming years. Travelling with Easyjet from Luton to Hamburg...

I visited this Christmas market with my mother, the market was really well spread out across lubeck with a high variety of stalls selling absolutely everything and great for present shopping. The atmosphere was brilliant.

Had an amazing couple of days (mon-wed) with friends and two small children at the market. Particularly loved the main market at Markt by the town hall. The bio gluhwein at the main stall under the big Christmas Tree is amazing and not too sweet. We also loved the Children's market at the river on the western side of town.... More

This was definitley the highlight of our trip to northern Germany. You step back in time when you enter the city. The many beautiful building surrounding the city are awesome and filled with a vast amount of history. It also offers a great shopping. And one of the best chocolate stores in the world. A great day trip.

The main Christmas market near the town hall is where the gorgeous food and mulled wine are to be found. It is a lovely atmosphere, quite magical. For absolutely exquisite handcrafted items, don't miss the Christmas market in the Holy Spirit Hospital (which in itself is worth a visit) and the one in Sankt Petri church where you can actually...
