The end of November is here again! A magical world of lights and treats heralds the pre-Christmas season in Rheine. Two great Christmas markets delight guests and locals alike in the second largest city in the Münsterland region.
The Emszauber Christmas market takes place on the Emsterrassen near the water and is especially known for its great gastronomic offer. The Nikolausmarkt is an arts and crafts market that takes place on Rheine's historic market square.
When the cold season bathes the Emsstadt in a beautiful winter coat, it is finally time again for the Emszauber. From 22 November to 20 December 2023, the Emsplateau and the Milchstraße will be transformed into a focal point for young and old in Rhein's Winter City.
With Christmas lights and lots of treats, it's the ideal place to visit with your family, friends or work team. There's plenty to discover here, including the mulled wine lounge, dining area, live programme, after-work parties and much more.
Während der regulären Öffnungszeiten sind die Getränkestände durchgehend geöffnet. Die Essensstände sind ebenfalls lange geöffnet, jedoch abhängig von der Nachfrage nicht bis zum Ende der jeweiligen Öffnungszeiten.
With a colourful range of culinary delights, high-quality arts and crafts and Christmas lights, the St. Nicholas market attracts visitors to Rheine city centre. From 7 to 10 December 2023, you will find lovingly crafted gift ideas, including products made with Rheine salt or honey products from the beekeepers' association.
A highlight is the traditional visit from St Nicholas at 5 pm on Sunday. Accompanied by torch divers and angels, awaited by musicians and many children, he will come along the waterway to the market square to tell a story.
Admission to the Christmas market is free!
