Christmas Market at the historic Old Town

Christmas season

Christmas Markets Hannover

Discover Hannover during Christmas season with its Christmas markets.

The season of good will returns every year accompanied by the festive mood, magical candle light and evocative scents. Hark to the romantic sights and sounds of the many local Christmas Markets in the Hannover Region, and herald in the pleasurable Christmas season!

Hannover’s Christmas Market diffuses a unique atmosphere throughout the historic Old Town. Glassblowers, potters and candlemakers demonstrate their skill in their respective crafts. Visitors can stroll and browse among no less than 150 stalls, enjoying delicious Christmas treats or simply observing the busy scene. In the historic Christmas village, a medieval town is brought to life again in all its olde-worlde quaintness. The Finnish Christmas Market on Ballhofplatz square exudes a charm all of its own as delicious “flammlachs“ – slow-grilled salmon – is prepared on an open fire.

Christmas Markets around the main station and on the Lister Meile

Thus there will be Christmas Markets around the central station cocated at Ernst-August-Platz which brings the spirit of the festive season into the heart of the city and on the Lister Meile - where seasonally decorated chalets transform the pedestrian boulevard into an illuminated ribbon of Christmas pleasures.

Save the date:
This year Christmas Markets will start at 23rd November 2016!
