Schleswig-Holstein is always wort a visit. But especially in December it is unique: During Christmas time many cities in Schleswig-Holstein set up charming Christmas markets. From the North Sea to the Baltic Sea, come and join us in December.

One of our well-known specialties is mulled wine or punch. You should also try roasted almonds or delicious baked apples. Experience old customs or find yourself shopping traditional leather goods, knit goods and enjoy activities you can do here with your kids. We are pleased to present you four of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Schleswig-Holstein.

In Flensburg you can discover the Christmas market from Südermarkt to Nordermarkt. It is influenced by its Scandinavian neighbor Denmark. A real highlight is the “Rote Straße” (‘Red Street’ in English) with all the lights and beautiful Christmas stalls.

You might as well visit the Christmas market in Kiel, the capital of Schleswig-Holstein. Enjoy the relaxed and maritime atmosphere on one of the various Christmas markets in Kiel. It is well-known for an international flair because the partner cities Tallinn, Gdynia and Kaliningrad present products, food and drinks from their home countries. Another highlight is the ice skating ring which is installed in front of the Cruise Terminal Ostseekai and organized by the Stadtwerke ice festival. Your children will be delighted.

In the Hanseatic city Lübeck you find many Christmas and craft markets. One of the Christmas markets is located in the historic part of the city. The traditional market is set in Lübeck's wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site. Still no idea for Christmas presents? Take a look at the Christmas stalls on Markt and Breite Straße.
