German Christmas Market in Sapporo

A Month-Long Display of German-Style Christmas Lights

November 22 – December 25, 2024

The market has been held in Sapporo since 2002, when the city marked the thirtieth anniversary of its sister-city ties with Munich, Germany. Stalls selling Christmas items, hot wine, and German food are set up for about a month at Odori Park. Also on sale are commemorative mug cups which change design each year. There are outdoor concerts, indoor workshops, and if you’re lucky you might receive a gift from Santa Claus! Tents with seats are available near the food stalls, so you don’t have to worry about the snow. The Christmas mood deepens from late November, when the Sapporo White Illumination also begins at Odori Park.
