Description

Dortmund can claim one of the biggest Christmas markets in Germany, with over 300 stalls packed around a gigantic Christmas tree creation that stands 45 metres tall – reputed to be the biggest in the world. Made up of 1,700 individual fir trees, its 13,000 lights bathe the Christmas proceedings in a seasonal glow. Every day there is a colourful show programme by the Alter Markt Theatre Company and a puppet or magic show to keep the children happy. Once the shopping for handicrafts like seasonal wood carvings, Christmas decorations and unusual toys is completed, shoppers can relax with a glass of hot mulled wine at one of the outdoor bars. As in previous years the Dortmund Christmas Market will once again be catering for all tastes with good solid dishes like sausages and Westphalian grilled ham as well as roasted almonds, pancakes and many other lip-smacking delicacies.
