Christmas Shopping

A shopping spree in Hessen’s capital is eventul, inspiring and guarantees constant variety – especially during Christmas.

Wiesbaden is a wonderful place to shop for gifts at Christmas time.

Unusual gift ideas, sports activities, art and entertainment above and beyond your expectations: it is rare that the fun of Christmas shopping can be combined so harmonically with pleasure as during the "Wiesbaden Christmas World". In addition to many boutiques, shops and businesses in which individuality, originality and quality are the top priorities, the Twinkling Star Christmas Market with its wide range of arts and crafts fulfils its mission of being a source of inspiration throughout the four weeks leading up to Christmas.

Tradition and quality are two words which many Wiesbaden retailers remain loyal to and their high quality goods reflect this commitment. Especially along the nearly two kilometres of Wilhelmstrasse, known here as the "Rue", and in the adjacent Burgstrasse, where boutiques offer internationally exclusive brands, there are creative fashion and jewellery designers whose selective range can even meet the expectations of any customers, no matter how particular.

Many interesting shops can also be found in Wiesbaden's historical district. This area is dominated by smaller boutiques, goldsmith ateliers, delicatessens and galleries, and here too, customers will quickly find the special brands which they are looking for. For the nostalgic we highly recommend a stroll along the Taunusstrasse, where numerous antique shops offer the finest of home interior accessories. The most frequented shopping avenue in Wiesbaden is Kirchgasse. Here and along its continuation called Langgasse, there are department stores, branch locations of specialised chains as well as new shopping centres offering goods to meet all your daily needs.
