Ice-Skating at DEG Winterwelt


At the north end of Königsallee, at the Corneliusplatz, you can rent skates and go for a couple of rounds on the ice. In the two-storey-shack you get your Glühwein, and also the tasty Füchschen Altbier!



Christmas Market Düsseldorf around the Kö-Bogen


Around the Kö-Bogen, more stalls are waiting for you. Also if you head into Schadowstraße, you can walk round about a kilometer in the middle of christmal world.

"Engelchen-Markt" at Heinrich-Heine-Platz


The Angel-Market is located very central at Heinrich-Heine-Platz, where you get of the U-Bahn when arriving by train. Tasty snacks and of course Glühwein and Christmas music is waiting for you.



Flinger Straße: "Altstadt-Markt"


As you head further into direction Rhine, you will pass the Flinger Straße. This year this part of the Christmas Market is shopping only area. Due to the stalls on the street the path for walking is pretty narrow, so the city decided to have no food or drink here, so people would stop less.


That means for you: Time for christmas shopping!
