In a city that is very proud of its maritime heritage, it is no surprise that much of the festivities take place along the River Weser at this time of year. The Schlachte Promenade will transport you back to the middle ages and a time when street performers would dazzle passers-by and craftsman would sell their handmade gifts. Many of the boats are decorated with twinkling lights and the smell of frying fish drifts past your nose.
