Christmas time in Darmstadt

From 25. November to 23. December 2024, Darmstadt will once again offer the best in culinary delights, Christmas shopping and a festive atmosphere!

 

Culinary and handicraft specialities invite you to pre-Christmas hustle and bustle at Darmstadt's Christmas market. The adventually decorated city centre and the Christmas trees on Marktplatz, Luisenplatz and Ludwigsplatz create a Christmas atmosphere.

 

The special highlight every year are the stalls from Darmstadt's twin towns. Whether handicrafts or culinary specialities such as Hungarian lángos or wine and cheese from Saanen (Switzerland) - the twin towns are eagerly awaited by Darmstadt residents and visitors alike every year.

Did you know...

...that Darmstadt has a "Glühweinprinzessin" (mulled wine princess)? She is elected every year since 2011 and, among other things, presents the new motif of the mulled wine glasses at the opening of the Darmstadt Christmas Market. Have a look at the "Glühweinprinzessinnen" of the past years here.

Christmas Pyramid

Christmas Pyramid

The Darmstadt Showmen's Association, in co-operation with the City of Science Darmstadt, gave the Darmstadt Christmas market a landmark in 1996 with the Christmas pyramid on the market square fountain. The association finances the pyramid and the city provides support with the licences.

 

The pyramid was made in 1995 by the Hilmersdorf local history association in the Ore Mountains. For its 20th anniversary in 2015, the pyramid was given a new structural design with a substructure made of steel beams. It was also completely repainted and the lighting was converted to modern LED technology.

 

The assembly of the 9 metre high pyramid is carried out by the showmen's association and takes approx. 10 hours with 8 workers - the dismantling takes approx. 8 hours.
