Every year in the weeks prior to Christmas the squares and alleys around Aachen’s town hall are transformed into a festive paradise of brilliant illumination and colourful splendour. The range of goods offered is overwhelming: from grand precious objects down to the modest trinket; from the most impressive gifts down to everyday utensils…it is no wonder that the Aachen Christmas Market has long since become a must for all the town's inhabitants and visitors alike!
