Christmas in Kiel
The Kiel Christmas markets wish you a warm welcome
From 27 November to 23 December: a Christmassy atmosphere throughout Kiel - stroll on foot through Kiel city centre and experience Christmas in four Nordic and genuine Christmas markets. In Kiel you have the opportunity to discover your personal favourite market in just a small area:
Romantic. Nordic. Genuine. - Rathausplatz
Under this motto, the new Kiel Christmas Village wishes all visitors a warm welcome! The cosy huts evoke the charm of a colourful village square in one of the neighbouring Scandinavian countries.
Holstenplatz - The original since 1973
The traditional Christmas market on Holstenplatz entices visitors with a completely new construction and offers an inviting place to stroll and linger. The area is atmospherically illuminated by a great light concept and is a perfect choice for shopping expeditions or some after work relaxation.
Asmus-Bremer-Platz-central & in the thick of it
In the geographic center between the markets, Asmus-Bremer-Platz shines in a new splendor and presents itself with more stalls than ever. Enjoy the diverse high-quality gastronomy and be surprised by the quality of your stay.
The magical charm of the cosy huts in the historic quarter
Experience the Christmas market at the foot of St. Nikolai Church in Kiel's historic quarter, paired with alpine-influenced party mood.
