Hanover Christmas Market
Hanover Christmas markets are lively breaks for families and couples on holidays to the German Christmas markets.

The Hanover Christmas markets add to the city's special yuletide ambience at this time of the year. You will find the most traditional market in the old town where thousands of candles and festively illuminated buildings create a romantic atmosphere. The adjacent Ballhof Square hosts the Finnish Christmas Market, offering delicacies from the far north, such as “Flammlachs” (grilled fish) and “Glögi” (mulled wine).

There is always a variety of German cuisine on offer with many traditional festive delicacies and treats available for you to sample whilst walking through this majestic city.

Tourists from all over the world come to visit the Hanover Christmas market and experience the sights of Lower Saxony's capital. The lively city centre, with its great shopping boulevard, and the lovely old town, with its narrow streets, invite you to do some delightful Christmas shopping. Visitors are spoilt for choice with no less than 150 beautifully decorated stalls. The many vendors located around the city offer a wide range of traditional handmade gifts including personalised trinkets, carved items and wooden toys. With accommodation available in a wide selection of historic locations, a trip to the Christmas markets in Hanover is a worthwhile visit.

An additional highlight of the market is the 'Wishing Well Forest', made out of more than 50 real fir trees and covering 400 square metres it is built around the stunning Oskar-Winter-Fountain. Here you will also find lots of cost huts serving mulled wine and culinary treats.
