Christmas Markets

In keeping with the theme 'Aurich shines - the whole town becomes a Christmas market' you are greeted by a sea of lights as soon as you arrive. Feel, taste and experience the festive season at Aurich Christmas market in East Friesland, which boasts a perfect mix of typical Christmas delicacies and crafts. You really ought to try 'poffertjes', a Dutch speciality, some East Friesian herbal sweets or the local glühwein. Good luck for the 'Goldene 7' Christmas lottery at the 11-metre Christmas pyramid. Children will love riding on the horses of the vintage carousel. And from the top of the Christmas Magic Ferris wheel the whole family can enjoy great views of the bustling Christmas market and the wintery East Friesian landscape. This is also a rare opportunity to combine a festive stroll with a leisurely shopping trip: during late-night opening on 10 and 17 December, the stores around the Christmas market stay open until 10pm.
