The starting signal for this year's Christmas Market is on 19th of November. The Hanseatic city of Lübeck invites you to stroll through the Christmas markets in Lübeck. The culinary delights and the annual hunt for Christmas gifts are on offer until the 30th December.

As the Christmas city of Northern Germany Lübeck extends a Christmas invitation to visit the UNESCO world heritage site from 19th of November until 30th of December 2016 (closed on the 25th December) and experience the unique cultural atmosphere of the Advent period. Under a sea of twinkling Christmas lights and the Christmas decorations decking the streets of the Old Town, atmospheric cheer is brought to the Hanseatic city. Lübeck the "Christmas City of the North" is officially opened with the event "Shining Advent" on the 26th November. Stroll through the charmingly decorated streets of the Old Town and the wonderful Christmas markets around the "Markt", "Koberg" and "Breite Straße". The smell of roasted almonds, mulled wine, herb sweets and delicious bratwurst linger in the clear winter air. There is a wide variety of stalls offering Christmas tree decorations, toys and lots of great gift ideas. More information at: www.luebeck-weihnachtsmarkt.de
