“Beautiful Christmas market”

Alter Markt Magdeburg

Attraction details
Reviewed December 24, 2012

The Christmas market in Magdeburg is yearly held on the Alter Markt square and surrounding area. It has different stalls selling amazing Christmas delights from the region. Most delicious are the thuringian sausages and the gluhwein. In addition to the many stalls and the giant ferriswheel, there is a medieval market, which is traditionally softly lit, with straw on the ground and traditional stalls offering more traditional regional specialities, with many wood fire pits. A merry affair.

Highly recommended

Opens with the beginning of the advent Saturdays, mid-November and lasts till just after Xmas (dec 30 in 2012). Closed on 24-25.

This is a great place to sample local life and opportunities. Lots of shopping; many good restaurants. Here is where you catch the city tour bus and this is a great tour giving a good idea of the town. Don't miss the "White Fleet" River cruise. It opens your eyes to the area and the development of the city.
