The Christmas fair in Rheda-Wiedenbrück is an annual highlight that takes place during the contemplative Advent season. The picturesque backdrop of the city of Rheda-Wiedenbrück, with its historic flair and lovingly restored half-timbered houses, is predestined for this Christmas market..

From the end of November to December 23, the marketplace in front of the historical town hall transforms into a Christmas fairytale land.

Visitors can find gifts for their loved ones and experience the city in its pre-Christmas glory. The stands feature decorative Advent ornaments, Christmas trees, and delicacies of all kinds.

A unique feature of this market is the atmosphere created by the illumination of the old town and the carved wooden stands. Traditional treats like gingerbread, mulled wine, and baked apples complete the offerings and ensure the well-being of the visitors. Those exploring the Christkindlmarkt will encounter many artisanal crafts, including incense smokers and angels, nativity scenes and toys, ceramics and porcelain, candles, and decorative Christmas ornaments.

Getting to the market is straightforward, whether by public transport or car, with well-signposted routes for visitors.
