A jewel of the North is the Emden Engelke-Markt, which attracts visitors with its maritime atmosphere. Festively illuminated museum ships and traditional sailing ships welcome you on board. The Christmas village with its illuminated Christmas pyramid is romantically nestled in front of the floodlit picturesque town hall. Father Christmas always appears on the stage of the city garden at 5pm and gives out presents to the children. The arrival of the Dutch Sinterklaas with his helper “Zwarter Piet” by ship is an exciting and long-awaited moment.
