Shopping in Christmas City Karlsruhe

Let the cozy, peaceful atmosphere of Christmas City Karlsruhe get you in the Christmas spirit!

Each December, the city magically transforms into a cozy sea of festive lights; the window displays don their holiday finest and the soothing scent of cinnamon and Glühwein (mulled wine) hangs in the air. There’s no doubt about it: Christmas City Karlsruhe is perfect for long strolls and relaxed days during the jolliest time of the year.

After all, everyone can use a break from the hectic frenzy that goes hand in hand with the season between Advent and the New Year. And that’s why our guests return year after year: For that unique Christmas experience – a perfect combination of action and relaxation – that only Karlsruhe can provide. Go for a leisurely stroll and get all of your last-minutes gifts on the longest shopping mile in Baden, all while taking in the city’s cheery Christmas atmosphere. And if it’s too cold outside, simply enjoy shopping from the warmth of the Post Galerie Shopping Center or Ettlinger Tor Shopping Center. Karlsruhe’s “Südliche Waldstraße” is also a favorite during the holiday season and perfect for those wishing to shop far away from the hustle and bustle of the Kaiserstraße.  Between purchases, shoppers can recharge their batteries with the various refreshments available at the Christmas Market, from a warm cup of Glühwein to a delicious “Dambedei”, a yeast pastry and local speciality.

Those who prefer shopping in the evening shouldn’t miss the special “Lange Einkaufsnacht”, or “Long Night of Shopping” on December 2, 2017! On this one Saturday, guests can shop, browse, and daydream to their heart’s content until 10 p.m.!
