When the Prinzipalmarkt takes on a golden radiance, the archways are
embellished with Advent wreaths, the smell of mulled wine and roasted almonds
flows through the streets and the stores are festively decorated, Münster’s
probably most beautiful season begins: from 27 November to 23 December, five
Christmas markets will open their doors and transform Muenster’s old town into
a winter fairy tale. Only a few walking minutes away from each other, the markets invite for cosy Christmas strolls. Under a romantic lightfilled sky, the oldest and largest Christmas market can be found on and around the town hall’s courtyard. Here, exceptional jewellery pieces, arts and craft and numerous culinary offerings are showcased.
