11 reviews of German Christmas Market in English
I was at the German Christmas Market in Edmonton in Nov 2006. There was a vendor selling jewelry that was made from vintage costume pieces that were ‘recreated’ into new designs. I have been searching for the name of that vendor (didn’t get a card). Does anyone know if the vendor continues to setup at the market or would anyone know the vendor’s business name? The jewelry pieces were quite unique. Thanks.

I love the Christmas Market I count down the days till it starts... Ok mostly for the food but the food is ace! Beautiful handcrafted decorations, gorgeous one off gifts, mulled wine and hot chocolates.. But what I always get is the fried potatoes with cheese sauce and pickles on the side .. I dont know why its so good it just is heavenly ...
Also the sugar coated cashews or whatever they are wrapped in a paper cone are just heaven on a stick I always go back and get a couple and the gingerbread oh dont even get me started... Ok weve established its all about the food ! But its good food and it only comes once a year its all about the food
Always a must at Christmas time! This market has lots of gift and food & drink stalls! Can be a bit pricey but lots of novelties on offer too! Can get really crowded so try to go off peak if you possibly can! Was amazed at the number of buggies and wheelchair users in the crush! Not saying they shouldn't go there but for their own sake off peak a must so they can at least see some of what's on offer!! Love the German beer!
The German Market is an Edinburgh Christmas institution. Situated of Princes St by the Gardens every December, wooden huts and stalls are opened selling an array of goodies. Some are better than others with good quality arts and crafts mixed in with a bit of naff.
The markets can get over-whelmingly busy at the weekends but it's a great spot for some late-night shopping and mulled wine mid-week.
This German winter market-themed attraction stands in Princes Street gardens during the colder months, and I guess it is pretty cool and fun, though a little bit gimmicky. Some of the toys and stalls are fun, although I'm guessing most of it was produced in Taiwan.
I really like the food and drink though. Gluwein and pretzels go down well. It's really warm here as well, which combined with the booze can make it a satisfying interlude in the punishing winter months.
Every year at the end of December, the German Christmas market comes to Edinburgh. There are lots of little wooden huts selling an array of Christmas goodies. There are also huts selling steak sandwiches, bratwerst and mulled wine.
I love the idea of the Christmas market but it does tend to get so busy it is just an effort to try to maneuver around the place. The stalls sell a lovely selection of sweets, wooden toys, ornaments, candle holders and things, but it is also quite expensive to buy things here, but the things you can buy are so unique and do make lovely gifts.
It is a lovely place to get into the Christmas spirit. however I do wish it wasn't so busy.. but I don't think that's going to change!
This is definite;y a must-see at Christmas time. The smell alone should be enough of an attraction. The stalls are a great place for picking up an unusual Christmas gift, or you might just want to wander around and soak up the festive atmosphere. There’s a great selection of continental treats and mulled wine to be sampled. Be warned, it gets very busy at peak times, but it’s definitely well worth a visit. I hope this Edinburgh tradition continues for many years to come.
The German Christmas Market a must go place during Festive Period in Edinburgh. Very popular attraction, where you can buy some of your Christmas presents, mostly affordable prices. The best thing is the food and drinks, like mulled wine, which goes well with the cold weather typical for winter season in Edinburgh.
If you ever find it hard to get your christmas cheer one there German market is they place to go. It normal starts the last week in November and packs up on Christmas eve.
They are all manners of goodies here. Traditional wood toys, hand painted decorations, Pretty glass wears, Gemstones, Traditional sweets, Candles, Tin toys and a food stalls that have the most temping wonderful smells.
This runs 27 November - 24 December. Sun-Wed 1000 - 2000, Thu-Sat 1000 – 2200
That is the German side of the market. There is usually 2 half’s. The other half consist of Scottish crafts, Hand knitted items, noverty x mas stuff, Artist stalls you get the idea.
27 November – 4 January. Sun–Wed 1000 – 2000, Thu-Sat 1000 - 2200
This is the place to go even just to be stuck in by the atmosphere.
The German Christmas Markets are a whole lot of fun. Staffed primarily by native Germans, the markets are an extremely popular attraction in the lead up to Christmas and the new years celebrations. Bringing all it’s produce from Germany, the market has an authentic ring to it. It’s a great place to hang out, grab a steak or some fried potatoes, a mug of mulled wine, and maybe a German sausage or two before purchasing that trinket your aunt wanted last year for Christmas…
