"It's very Christmassy!" - Gütersloh's Christmas walk

On our Christmas walk, our city guides will take you on a journey of discovery through the festively decorated Dalkestadt.

"Little children, come!"

...because it's getting Christmassy in Gütersloh!

When the Christmas market rings in the Advent season, it's time for the popular Christmas tours. On these tours, our city guides take you on a journey of discovery through the festively decorated Dalke city.

From the Apostle Church, Brunhilde Kohls will take you on a two-hour tour of the city to the nativity scene in the Martin Luther Church, the Christmas market on Berliner Platz and the Evangelisch-Stiftisches Gymnasium (ESG). The city museum is also a stop on the entertaining walk. City guide Brunhilde Kohls shares her knowledge about how Christmas was celebrated in Gütersloh in Prussian times and why speculoos cookies were shipped from the Dalke across the Atlantic to America. The origins of Christmas music traditions, such as tower blowing or the night chimes, which are unique in Germany, are also the subject of our tour.

Barbara Weidler takes a slightly different approach. Here, too, you will learn exciting insider knowledge and get answers to the questions mentioned. Accompanied by the glow of lights and the adventurous chimes at the town hall, however, she starts from there in the direction of Berliner Platz. Surrounded by the smell of roasted almonds, the path leads you to the Evangelisch-Stiftisches Gymnasium, into the church of St. Pancras and onto the Alter Kirchplatz. The tour ends after about 1.5 hours at the Martin Luther Church to the sounds of the night chime. From there it is only a few steps to the Gütersloh Christmas Market, where the spicy taste of punch and mulled wine already awaits you.
