Kiel Christmas markets
The Kiel Christmas markets wish you a warm welcome
From 27 November to 23 December: a Christmassy atmosphere throughout Kiel - stroll on foot through Kiel city centre and experience Christmas in four Nordic and genuine Christmas markets. In Kiel you have the opportunity to discover your personal favourite market in just a small area:
Romantic. Nordic. Genuine. - Rathausplatz
Under this motto, the new Kiel Christmas Village wishes all visitors a warm welcome! The cosy huts evoke the charm of a colourful village square in one of the neighbouring Scandinavian countries.
A wealth of tradition on Holstenplatz
With more than 80 stalls, the Christmas market on Holstenplatz has been enticing visitors to take a wintry stroll past mix of crafts, punch, and treats since 1972.
Asmus-Bremer-Platz-central & in the thick of it
In the geographic centre between the markets, Asmus-Bremer-Platz invites you to linger with goodies and hot drinks. Here you can enjoy the post-Christmas hustle and bustle right up to the 31 December.
The magical charm of the cosy huts in the historic quarter
Experience the Christmas market at the foot of St. Nikolai Church in Kiel's historic quarter, paired with alpine-influenced party mood.
The four Christmas markets and the Stadtwerke Ice Festival are within walking distance of each other, connected by short, welcoming routes:
Stadtwerke Ice Festival
The Stadtwerke Ice Festival arrives at the cruise ship terminal of the Ostsee quay! The blades will be glowing here once again from 17th November till 14th January 2018. The sheltered ice surface and the cosy pagodas let you enjoy carefree skating, company and Christmas parties, curling again this year, whatever the weather.All offers and opening times (Ger)
