Visiting the Lübeck Christmas Market, which was documented for the first time in 1648, is one of the pre-Christmas highlights in the Hanseatic city.

The aroma of roasted chestnuts, mulled wine, herbal sweets and delicious sausages wafts through the clear winter air, while the stalls on Markt and Breite Straße offer Christmas tree decorations, toys and countless ideas for wonderful gifts. This festive pleasure is staged in Lübeck's wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site, providing a uniquely beautiful backdrop to the hustle and bustle of Christmas in the Hanseatic city.
