The International Christmas market in Essen has 250 stalls packed with fantastic gift ideas and culinary specialities from all over the world. Night owls will be pleased to hear that the market is open until midnight on 6 December. Journey back in time at the medieval market or watch a Nativity play enacted by mime artists at the cathedral. Our tip: the Adveniat candlemaking house and the illuminated Ferris wheel.
