Let Angels Watch you at Christmas Markets in Düsseldorf
I didn’t know what to expect from my first German Christmas Markets, but the first impression was really magical. We were coming from Hunstrückenstraße to Heinrich-Heine-Platz and I saw beautiful light brown stands decorated with different golden angels on top. We came to “Engelchenmarkt” (“Little Angel Market”).
The square is full of beautiful stands where you can find different drinks: coffee with Baileys, Whiskey or Jagermeister, Mulled wine (Glühwein), Punch or Hot chocolate. The place is crowded, people enjoy drinking and interested in handmade products or just having some friendly conversations as these two beautiful German girls. You can feel happiness around.
We drunk coffee with Baileys and Whiskey (the Baileys one is better) and continued discover the place.
I really liked to walked between all these angels watching you and smiling at you from everywhere.
I noticed that I am not alone, people and children walking around and visiting this Christmas Market were amazed as much as I was.
Continuing to Flinger Straße
Whole place was very crowded, but with real Christmas atmosphere. You can find very friendly and smiling craftsmen and craftswomen presenting various and interesting products: wreaths, figurines, candles, candle holders, Christmas balls, various decorations and much more.
Getting to Marktplatz
All streets were very crowded, but the smell of food was dashing and we get hungry quickly. After few minutes I saw beautiful square with big decorated Christmas Tree. In the air are sausages, potato pancakes, burgers with mushrooms and grilled chicken. We choose potato pancakes.
Square is not very big, but you can find here all you need: food, drinks, crafts and merry-go-round. I found this young spirit stand, where you can get customized shoes, hat or other decorations. These young artists are doing it on the place, just for you, in couple of minutes, that’s awesome!
Finishing our tour at Burgplatz
Just next to the Rhein you’ll find small, but interesting market. It’s calm place, with view at the river and Ferris wheel, which dominate at the square. We took some food again, that time Hungarian Lángos. People are in happy mood, enjoying their food and drinks, just having good time. We also saw small local choir.
I can highly recommend to visit Christmas Markets in Düsseldorf. Especially Little Anglel Market. You’ll feel like in small heaven at the Earth.
