Aachen Christmas Market - Aachener Weihnachtsmarkt
The Aachen Christmas market , which takes place annually during Advent , was founded in the 1970s. The Printenmarkt , as it used to be called, was only located around the Elisenbrunnen , whereas today the Christmas market takes place on the Aachener Markt and the Katschhof , because otherwise there would not be enough space.
With an annual number of more than 1.5 million visitors from large parts of Europe , the Aachen Christmas market is one of the larger in Germany , although in 2008 it was only served by 117  exhibitors and restaurateurs .
