Engelke Market Emden

| Emden Christmas market in the old inland harbor

The Emden Engelke Market is an annual festive event, traditionally held from the last week of November until December 31st in the charming city of Emden in East Frisia..

Emden, known for its proximity to the North Sea and its unique cityscape, provides a perfect backdrop for this market. Organized by the Emden Tourist Information, the Engelke Market unfolds along the picturesque Ratsdelft and in the idyllic city garden. These locations are enriched by the historic ambiance of surrounding buildings like the town hall and St. John's Church, which give the market an incomparable atmosphere.

The market stalls are spread out in these areas, offering a plethora of attractions and delicacies. Visitors can browse through a variety of handicrafts, traditional foods, and drinks that reflect the regional specialties of East Frisia. From aromatic tea varieties to hearty treats, the culinary offerings are a key part of the market experience.

A special feature of the Engelke Market is its name, inspired by the figure of the golden maiden eagle, also known as "Engelke up de Muer," from Emden's city coat of arms. This local symbolism gives the market a unique identity and emphasizes its close connection to the city's history. The eagle traditionally symbolizes strength and vigilance, and its position on the wall could be interpreted as a symbol of protection for the city. This image reflects the historical pride and independent spirit of Emden's people, who have defended their city against various challenges over the centuries. The name "Engelke up de Muer" is a fond, colloquial designation that highlights the Emdeners' deep connection to their coat of arms and its symbolism. This figure is not only a landmark of the city but also an integral part of the local culture and identity.

In addition to the usual market activities, the Engelke Market offers a variety of entertainment options, ranging from musical performances to special events for children. With its unique character and the warm hospitality visitors experience there, it's no wonder that this market attracts numerous visitors each year, becoming an unforgettable experience.

The Engelke Market in Emden took place from Monday, 27. November to Sunday, 31. December 2023.
