Wiesbaden’s Christmas market takes place from 22 November until 23 December 2022.

The Twinkling Star Christmas Market on the Schlossplatz will open its doors on 22 November until 23 December 2022. With the opening of the Twinkling Star Christmas Market in November, the most wonderful time of the year begins for many Wiesbaden people and their guests.

The atmospheric setting for the Market is the picturesque Schlossplatz in the heart of the city. The colours of blue and gold as well as the golden lilies of the city coat of arms form the stylishly decorative elements for the Christmas handicraft market.

Four star-adorned gates form the entrance to the lovely scenery where you can find special souvenirs, gifts and delicacies at more than 100 uniformly designed stands. The wonderful lighting in the form of the Wiesbaden lilies – which transform the scenery into a festive atmosphere – accompanies the guest not only around the Twinkling Star Christmas Market but through the city centre.

The Wiesbaden Twinkling Star Christmas Market is one of the special traditional and social attractions that the state capital has to offer. It allows the region to become a unique location and a true magnet for visitors. This is where local Wiesbaden people and guests can, in addition to museums and marketplaces, discover cosy coffee houses, great bars, music and theatre programmes that characterise the distinctive charm of Wiesbaden, that something special.
