Romantic. Nordic. Genuine. - Rathausplatz
november 25th until december 23rd
Besides the flying gnome Kilian, there are artisans, specialists of delicacies as well as mulled wine geniuses that provide the guests of the romantic Christmas village with a magical pre-Christmas atmosphere.
The single-origin „Sterne Glühwein“ is of high quality as it is produced by the renowned winery “Anselmann” from the Palatinate region. It is served exclusively within the Christmas village.
At the town hall square of Kiel there is a fir forest consisting of more than 500 trees on 3,000 sqm. Single picturesque huts are forming a little village that invites everybody to browse, feast, shop and linger.
Sunday to Thursday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Friday and Saturday: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The magic of the gnomes
Three times a day there is a mini cog flying over the Christmas market on the town hall square of Kiel. It is pulled by six reindeers. The gnome named Kilian tells his own personal story about the presents and why they are distributed by ship and not by sleigh.
Special tip: Daily at 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
For the first time Kiel-Marketing invites to pre-Christmas shopping with its own stall. At the stall you may choose between selected Kiel-Week products, snow globes, original mulled wine from the Christmas village in bottles, the popular 0€ note, gin of the brand Spitzmund and much more.
