Christmas market Darmstadt

| Christmas market

The Bessungen Christmas Market in Darmstadt, an annual festival celebrating the reflective pre-Christmas season, has attracted numerous visitors since its first event in 1993. Traditionally, this market takes place on the first two Advent weekends, from Friday to Sunday, nestled in the romantic early winter season..

Darmstadt is predestined for this market due to its historical and cultural significance. Visitors can expect a Christmas market that impresses with its individual and cozy charm. Apart from commercial large-scale events, the Bessungen Christmas Market offers an intimate and warm atmosphere. The diversity of artisanal and local products available at the lovingly decorated stalls is particularly noteworthy.

A distinctive feature of the market is its focus on regional traditions and customs, presented in a modern light. Visitors can enjoy typical Hessian delicacies and beverages, including mulled wine and regional specialties that reflect the spirit of the region.

The combination of historical ambiance, unique products, and a warm atmosphere makes the visit an unforgettable experience. It's this special mix of tradition and community spirit that makes the Bessungen Christmas Market in Darmstadt so unique and worth visiting.

The Christmas market takes place annually, and therefore for the 31st time previsibly in December 2024 in Darmstadt.
