This is a must for most Lubeckians and many tourists - at least once a year. But I am not fond of the lack of christmas spirits (ok, a lot of nice lights) completely replaced by food and mainly Mulled Wine stands.... An excellent source for hangover headache!

We took the train out to Lubeck to experience their Christmas markets and were glad we did! They were beautiful with lots of traditional stalls and more unique things like a stall just selling brushes of every description! The decorations and foods were lovely and the gluhwein (with rum!) excellent. The location for the markets against the cathedral or near... More

I wondered if a German Christmas market would be aimed at tourists and therefore be less than authentic. I was completely wrong on that front. The vast majority of visitors were German although I felt welcome. The Gluhwein was warming on a cold December evening and I tried lots of delicious food I had never heard of before such as... More

Absolutely love the atmosphere! This market locates between modern buildings and ancient castles, with cosy decorations, looooots of food and many different types of mulled wine....

Especially the part near the City Hall is very nice, offering Christmas treats, food and beverages for every taste. Next to the Marienkirche nearby you will find the historic part of the market which is very cosy and offering handmade goods. Usually you will find the fairy tales displays near to it, too, so there will be a lot of... More

One of the nicest Christmas markets in Germany. The one near the market place is particularly pretty.

It is a beautiful Christmas Market, small and cute. You should see it! Try the Elch Burger or the "Stockfleisch", it is a need!

The main part of the market is in front of the town hall, but there are other sections all over the centre. This is one of the few markets that continues after Christmas almost to the New Year. As Christmas markets go (and I'm not really a fan - if you've seen one you've seen them all), it was very... More

Quite small but plenty of variety, traditional food and a lovely atmosphere, right next to a mix of historic old buildings and modern shops.
