Christmas market Stade

| Stade Christmas market in the old town

The Stade Christmas Market, an annual highlight in the picturesque Hanseatic city of Stade, traditionally takes place from the last week of November until December 23rd. This period is characterized not only by its festive atmosphere but also by the unique historical ambiance of Stade's old town and the Pferdemarkt, where the market is held..

With its rich history and excellently preserved half-timbered houses, Stade provides the perfect backdrop for this festive occasion. The historical buildings, such as the old town hall and churches, are particularly striking, giving the market an almost fairytale-like atmosphere.

The organization and execution of the market are in the experienced hands of Stade Aktuell GmbH. They not only bring comprehensive expertise in event management but also ensure that the market becomes an unforgettable experience each year.

A visit to the Stade Christmas Market promises a journey through a wide spectrum of traditional and modern market stalls. These extend throughout the entire old town, offering everything from handicrafts to culinary delights. Visitors can look forward to unique handicrafts, Christmas decorations, and gift ideas.

What makes the Stade Christmas Market so special is its successful blend of tradition and modernity. In addition to classic Christmas market treats like mulled wine and roasted almonds, there are also regional specialties that reflect the character of the region. Culinary highlights include North German Pfeffernüsse and the famous Stade egg punch.

The market is easily accessible by public transport and car. It offers a convenient way for both local residents and tourists to become part of this wintery magic. Whether it’s music, theater performances, or special events for children, the Stade Christmas Market is an experience for the whole family and a must-visit for anyone wanting to enjoy the pre-Christmas season in one of Northern Germany's most beautiful cities.

The Christmas market in Stade took place from Monday, 27. November to Saturday, 23. December 2023.
