During the period before Christmas, Duisburg's city center changes it's face and radiates a particular flair. The large, colorful light displays over the streets announce: It is the Christmas market again! The numerous, wooden huts lined up next to each other make a cosy Christmas market mile out of the boulevard-like Königstrasse, which invites one to wonder. The lights of the stands, amounting to more than 150 yearly, blend in with the thousands of bulbs in the trees of the avenue and with the some 400 decorated Christmas trees. Over everything hangs the unmistakable aroma of baked almonds, roasted chestnuts and other delicious things. The warming mulled wine is of course also present. Over 1.5 million visitors visit the Duisburg Christmas market ever year, which counts as one of the largest on the Lower Rhine
