Dortmund Christmas Market | Christmas Markets in Germany | Germany Travel Blogs

Updated: May 27


My First Christmas Market in Germany:

The German Christmas Markets “Weihnachts Markt” are famous all over the World. I always wanted to experience the Christmas festivity in Europe and the first Christmas market I had visited was a Christmas Market of Baku, Azerbaijan in December 2017.

Dortmund Christmas Market

This year, Dortmund Christmas Market was the first one I have visited in Mainland Europe. Dortmund Christmas Market in the City Center is just like my imagination and the videos of Christmas festivity I used to watch during my childhood.

As I am staying in Dortmund just in the center and watching the preparation of the Christmas tree every day, it was so exciting to see the tall Christmas tree full of lights.


In the fashion street of the Dortmund, there are also few artists playing a very alluring music for the audience and receiving a great appreciation from the audience. The main fashion street also has food stalls and it is always full of crowd in these days.
