Christmas time in Darmstadt - Christmas Market from 23. November to 23. December 2020

The smell of ginger bread and mulled wine, handicraft and an festive atmosphere put you in the mood for Christmas when strolling around Darmstadt's Christmas Market.


Tuesdays and Wednesdays offer special programmme for children with music and interactive quiz. The school choir "Schulspatzen" traditionally performs on Tuesdays, 25.11.

Special about Darmstadt's Christmas Market are the stalls of Darmstadt's many twin cities. Handicraft e.g from Liepaja (Latvia) or culinary specialities like Hungarian Lángos or wine and cheese from Swiss Saanen are awaited eagerly by Darmstädter and visitors every year.

Lara Kerres is "Darmstädter Glühweinprinzessin 2019"

Born in Stuttgart, Germany, the 24-year old Lara is living in Darmstadt now for six years and was croned "Glühweinprinzessin 2019" ("Mulled Wine Princess") by a jury after a casting in the shopping mall Luisencenter.


The mechanical engineering student is still ecstatic days after the coronation. "I'm a big fan of the Christmas market in Darmstadt. He means a lot to me. When I came to study, I did not know anyone. At the Christmas market, I got to know people, which helped a lot to settle here. "

Today she does not even have to arrange for someone to meet at the Christmas market. "I just go there - and there are always people I know. A great feeling. "
