Chritmas Markets in Madrid are not as popular as others in central Europe, but they are actually quite spectaculal. So it is time for you to bundle up, and take a walk through the city and experience not one, but at least seven Christmas Markets this year. Below you will see the best guide, to ensure you have solid plans every weekend this holiday season.
Plaza Mayor Christmas Market
The most famous holiday market in the city takes place in Plaza Mayor, located a 10-minute walk from Malasaña Madrid Coliving . Right in the center, you will find more than 100 wooden booths that offer an array of Christmas decorations and ornaments. It is here where all the things that you need to complete your Nativity Scene can be found.
When: November 25 – December 31, 2022
Location: Plaza Mayor
Handmade Artisan Market of Madrid
This will be Madrid’s 36th edition of the Crafts Fair which can be found between Colón and Cibeles, a 5-minute walk from Urban Campus Jerónimo. There will be 155 stands for you to discover throughout your walk, some may include pottery, jewellery, leather goods, engraved gifts, glass products, and more.
When: December 1 – 30, 2022

Plaza de Juan Goytisolo Christmas Market
An additional market is held next to the skating rink of Plaza de Juan Goytisolous, again only a 10-minute walk from our Coworking in Jerónimo. The vendors here not only sell gifts, but delicious Christmas food you will need to keep you warm.

Christmas Sweets Fair
If you like sugar and sweets this is the market for you. Quite literally known as the Christmas Sweets Fair, this market has everything you need to offer your family after a big Christmas day lunch. For those who live in our Malasaña Coliving, you are only a dangerous 10-minute walk away!
When: November 30, 2022 – January 5, 2023
Location: Plaza de Isabel II
El Corte Inglés Castellana Christmas Market
The parking lot of the Corte Inglés converts into what we believe to be one of the most Christmas-themed spots in Madrid and it is luckily only 10-minutes from our brand new coliving in Cuarto Caminos. There are a handful of food vendors where you can grab a nice bite to eat. Last year, there was a gourmet burger truck with quite the line up.
We feel it is important to say, not much shopping will be done here in terms of gifts for family or friends. However, we do recommend you visit and experience the scenery, the light show and Christmas classic jams they keep on all night – its a great afternoon plan to get in the holiday spirit.
When: November 20, 2022 – January 5, 2023
Location: El Corte Inglés Castellana
Articus – Casa de Campo Christmas Market
The new Christmas Market in Casa de Campo known as Articus will offer artist creations, crafts, and products from major brands. They are showcasing this market all over Madrid, from billboards in the metro to ads on the buses. We don’t have much to say, as this is a new market for Madrid, but we will definitely see you there! Especially those who live in our Malasaña Coliving, because its only 5-minutes away.
When: December 16, 2022 – January 8, 2023
Location: Av. del Lago s/n
An outdoor skating rink of 450m2 will be set up in the newley renovated Plaza España for the second year in a row. Located 3-minutes away from our Malasaña Coliving, you will be able to see the biggest Christmas tree Madrid has this year. Not only will you be able to purchase handmade products and meals but there will also be theatrical and circus experiences.
When: November 25, 2022 – January 8, 2023
