A Small Local Christmas Market: The Nikolausmarkt in Homburg, Germany

Updated: Dec 8, 2023

"Small in size but bursting with festive delights—don't underestimate the charm of the Nikolausmarkt! Trust me, it serves up one of the best späetzle dishes I've ever had! 🎄✨ Embrace the magic of these smaller, more intimate Christmas Markets. They are often less crowded and have a more authentic feel, with an ample dash of holiday joy!"

Last year, I remember seeing an ice skating rink, but I don't recall seeing one this year. I think it is in a little bit of a different location as well.


Update: There is another market that is looking to open soon with the skating rink! It is called the Homburg Weihnachtsdorf and can be found at the Christian-Weber Platz. You can find the official website here: https://www.homburger-weihnachtsdorf.de/. It looks like the Nikolausmarkt goes until the 10th, and then the Weihnachtsdorf takes over until the 30th.

A few suggested parking lots:


🅿️ The one I used is the Gerberstraße 10 Parking. However, on a busy day/night, it most likely wouldn't be the best place to park.


🅿️ I usually park at the Enklerplatz, about a 7-minute walk away. It is a larger parking lot, and I almost always find a spot.

It's a lovely little market with, and from this angle, the St. Michael Roman Catholic Church peeks out above the surrounding buildings.

They have one swing ride for the kiddos. 👶

Their mug seemed very generic, and I wasn't going to keep it at first. 🤔

Until I saw the inside! 😍


Update: I saw someone's recent post and Homburg apparently does have their own mug! I will have to go back and see if I can snag it!



Great food options, but as I mentioned above, my friend and I ordered a späetzle to share from the nudel stand, and wow! 😱🤩

I don't know if this is how big it always is, but it was huge! They also did not skimp on toppings! We both ate half of it at the market, then I took it home and reheated it the next day, and still couldn't finish it. I keep thinking about going back and getting some more. 💭



A little bit of shopping is available, but nothing crazy. I especially enjoyed this little craft hut found in the main section! ✂️🧵

It's probably very charming at night, with all the lights lit!

Also, a little bit further down is this sandwich stand with very interesting flavor combos. I think I'll definitely pop in for lunch sometime! 🍽️🥪
