The German Christmas Markets are internationally well known and appreciated. Soon it is time again: In many towns the Christmas Markets and winter fairs will be held and the Advent season with its enchanting atmosphere starts. For some international employees and their families who have just arrived to Düsseldorf or the Mettmann County it will be their first visit of the Christmas Markets. In order to introduce the local Christmas traditions and customs, the Expat Service Desk organizes a guided tour to two different Christmas Markets.
The tour will be accompanied by the English-speaking guides from the County of Mettmann and Düsseldorf. The first station will be the “Blotschenmarkt” in Mettmann, which is very traditional, cozy and well set on the Marktplatz. The second station of the tour is the Christmas Market on the Schadowplatz in Düsseldorf. During the bus trip, the guides will provide a lot of interesting and useful information about the region and the German Christmas traditions.
