Christmas market Soest

25 Nov. - 22 Dec. 2024 | Christmas market in Soest

The Soest Christmas Market, an annual highlight during the Advent season until December 22nd, is a feast for the senses and tradition. Located in the heart of Soest's old town, this Christmas market is distinguished by its unique setting. The historic city center, with its green sandstone churches and half-timbered houses, provides a picturesque backdrop that shines in festive splendor. The organizer of the market is Wirtschaft und Marketing Soest GmbH, which is responsible not only for organizing the market but also for promoting the regional economy and city marketing..

A distinctive feature of this market is its location: It spans the entire city center, from the marketplace to the Petrikirchhof. Around 100 lovingly decorated stalls offer a variety of gift items, handicrafts, Christmas decorations, and culinary delights. Visitors can enjoy craft demonstrations and be enchanted by the atmospheric ambiance. Countless stars give the entire marketplace with its charming half-timbered houses an indescribable firmament and add an extra sparkle to the cathedral square next to the impressive Romanesque tower of St. Patrokli, while elsewhere, the tower of St. Petri and the historic town hall form an impressive setting for the Christmas market.

The uniqueness of the Soest Christmas Market lies in its numerous attractions and activities. The Christmas angel distributes sweets to children daily, while the tower blower plays evening melodies. On weekends, there is an opportunity to phone Santa Claus, and from the second weekend of Advent, the Westphalian Crib in St. Patrokli can be admired.

Culinary-wise, visitors are treated to traditional delicacies and beverages. From savory treats to sweet specialties, the selection is abundant and reflects the regional cuisine.

The market is easily accessible, both by public transport and by car, making it an attractive destination for visitors from near and far.

Soest itself is a city rich in history and cultural treasures. Characterized by medieval architecture and historical buildings, the city offers a fascinating insight into the past. Thus, the Christmas market is not just a place of enjoyment and joy but also a reflection of the rich culture and history of Soest.

In conclusion, the Soest Christmas Market is more than just a market; it is a celebration for the community, celebrating local culture and welcoming visitors from all over the world.
