The Stadtgarten Christmas market is all about "lifestyle with feeling, modern creations, traditional crafts and nostalgic bits and bobs". More than 80 exhibitors will be selling a whole range of unusual wares – from design elegance to traditional Christmas goods right through to lovingly hand-crafted individual pieces. The atmospheric stalls and strings of lights hanging above visitors’ heads give the feeling of being in a Christmas village – right in the middle of the city!

The stalls and the exhibitors change weekly so things never get boring. Come along for a second visit. And of course there are plenty of treats in store: organic mulled wine, delicious stews, tarte flambée, crêpes, almonds, raclette, waffles – all homemade with fresh ingredients to really round your visit off in style.

A further highlight is the Christmas stage featuring puppet shows, children’s theatre, fire-eaters, story tellers, and jazz concerts. (Photo: Fotografie Joachim Rieger)
