The Christmas Markets are one of the most popular destinations in the city over the festive season, so it's no surprise they get busy and bustling, especially on weekends and mealtimes. To avoid the big crowds:

  • visit on weekdays which are always quieter, particularly in the morning;
  • check all the markets as some areas are busier than others. See the Christmas Markets map.
