Aachen Christmas Market Featured in
The Aachen Christmas Market has recently made it to the top ten Best Christmas Markets in Europe, and for a good reason. This celebration in the beautiful city of Aachen is filled with twinkling lights and the scent of mulled wine. Lots of people gather to have fun and celebrate the winter season with a blast.
The market is nestled in the squares and lanes around Aachen Cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site) and the town hall. Overall, the whole city is covered with sparkling illuminations and decorated trees. One of the top drinks is Glühwein, of course. People sip it from a special Christmas mug and wander along the bright-lit lines. The Aachen Christmas Market is also popular for its Aachen Printen, a sweet spiced gingerbread that matches perfectly with mulled wine.
The market is open daily from 11 am to 9 pm. However, you should check the official website for the most up-to-date information (the site is located in the External Resources section). The city center gets pretty busy during this time, so plan your time to find a parking space. The Aachen Christmas Market welcomes over 1,5 million visitors annually and is a great place to unwind and forget about your everyday worries.
