Wiesbaden Christmas Market
The Wiesbaden Christmas Market transforms the city into a sparkling winter wonderland. Four entry gates, decorated with the golden lilies of the city's coat of arms, grant access to the quaint fairytale scenery of the Twinkling Star Christmas Market. Unique arts and crafts are offered at these nostalgic market stands that are decorated in the city's traditional colours of gold and blue.
Providing the romantic setting for Wiesbaden's Sternschuppen Christmas Market is the idyllic Schlossplatz. The tall shimmering Christmas tree and the manger, with its life-size wooden figures, are definite highlights. Take a look at the Christmas tree made out of 2,000 winter roses in the flamboyant foyer of the Kurhaus Wiesbaden. Don't forget to have a mulled wine or two as you wander through the quaint, festive stalls.
People come from all over to sample the sweet seasonal delights and warming drinks available at the Wiesbaden Christmas Market. A festive programme, which includes traditional carol singers and concerts, add to its unique charm.
The city comes alive at Christmas time with a large Christmas tree in front of the town hall displaying thousands of lights and decorations setting the scene for the city's colourful celebrations.
Wiesbaden city breaks attract thousands of visitors each year who come to experience the festive delights this cosmopolitan city has to offer.
