Christmas City of the North

Wonderful Lübeck winter magic

Soon it will be Christmas and the time of anticipation and joy begins! Our beautiful Lübeck Christmas Market will open on 22nd November and will shine in festive splendour with over 500,000 spots of light. We are looking forward to having you and to enjoy together the festively decorated Old Town and smell the scent of baked apples, roasted almonds, mulled wine and yummy grilled sausages.

Certainly, there will be certain rules that need to be observed, but currently we arrange for the open-air Christmas markets on the market, on the Koberg, in the pedestrian area and on Schrangen to take place. The Christmas Wonderland at the Hansemuseum will invite families and children to a wonderful advent experience.

The hygiene concept of the event will always be adapted to the respective official regulations in order to make sure that we can together enjoy a carefree atmosphere. In case that the restrictions will be more tight, it might happen that the Christmas market will have to be closed, because our well-being, safety and health are of course paramount. We are looking forward to experiencing with you a wonderful pre-Christmas season with all the familiar market stands and the amazing offers, which have been enchanting the people's hearts since 1648!



We take care of each other and want you to feel safe. Dealing thoughtfully with the challenges of COVID-19 is one aspect of our mindful approach. Please make sure you check the latest updates before travelling.

I will never forget how I loved the magic of Christmas.

Thomas Mann, 1924



All I want for Christmas is you
