Essen Christmas Market - Christmas Market in Germany

As I had already been living in NRW quite some time. And already explored the main Christmas Market in the region. In Winters of 2018, As a couple We had planned to visit all the main Christmas Markets of NRW State, Germany.

We had started our exploration from Dortmund then the Most Beautiful Christmas Market of Cologne, followed by Düsseldorf.

Aoon had already imagined that Essen Christmas Market will also be as huge as other Christmas Markets we had visited so far. But Essen’s Christmas Market is very different from other huge and over crowded Markets.

It’s smaller and cozier and attracts mostly locals rather than big numbers of Tourists. Even if the weather gets bad, there's plenty of space to take the shelter.

How to Reach to Essen:


Essen is located between Dortmund and Düsseldorf and highly accessible with Public Transport. The best and most effective way is to take Regional Bahn or ICE.

If you are already living in NRW, it's highly recommended to take a NRW day ticket costing € 30.50 and travel unlimited from 9:00 AM to 3:00 AM on weekdays and 6:00 AM to 3:00 AM on weekends.


You can also take a Flixbus. It's a cheaper option but takes more time than train.

Essen Christmas Market location:

As you go out from the Essen Central Station, you can see the lighting of small Christmas stalls in front of you. The Main Christmas Market in Kennedyplatz, it's a few meters away around 10 minutes walk from the Essen Central Station.
