Once a year, our centres are transformed into magical Christmas worlds. Customers are immersed in a special shopping experience where lights, glitter and fragrances put them in the Christmas spirit – an annual must for international customers. During November and December, the entrances to the shops are lit up with fairy lights, Advent decorations and Christmas tree ornaments. From the world’s largest Secret Santa tree to themed Christmas worlds and Disney-style Christmas parades, each of our Christmas markets offers unique highlights.
Westfield Centro Oberhausen – Three themed Christmas worlds as an international tourist attraction
The Christmas market at Westfield Centro Oberhausen has become one of the most successful in the whole of NRW. The traditional, cosy mountain Christmas market, the colourful Father Christmas village and the fairy-tale Secret Santa market have brought Westfield Centro’s visitor numbers to record levels. Every year, the around 145 huts of the Christmas markets lure visitors into three entirely different themed and authentic worlds. They extend around the mall from the entrance at Platz der Guten Hoffnung to Luise-Albertz-Platz.
The prominent location promises: no junctions or side entrances with weaker visitor frequency. But that’s not all: the accompanying and extraordinarily positive media coverage (including TV) guarantees great visitor interest – also internationally. Since 1996, the Westfield Centro Christmas Market has traditionally attracted tourists from all over North Rhine-Westphalia, the neighbouring federal states and even neighbouring countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands or England. In recent years, around 52 million guests strolled along the lovingly decorated stalls, including many tourist visitors who came to the Westfield Centro in around 32,000 coaches.
