In Worms, the seasonal sounds of Christmas trumpeters ring out from the city's charming medieval churches. The Worms Christmas Market has more than 50 lovingly decorated stalls around the beautiful Obermarkt square, as well as a 'living Nativity scene'. The market is full of merchants selling an array of handcrafted toys and gifts for adults and children alike. The smell of traditional German cuisine fills the air as does the tempting aroma of handmade gingerbread men and freshly cooked sausages which are available from the many food stalls located throughout the markets.
The Worms Christmas Market has a long tradition going back generations and, although it may be one of the smaller Christmas markets in Germany, it is no less emphatic. As one of the oldest markets in the country, visitors can be sure to experience a traditional celebration with many sellers dressed up in themed clothing, giving visitors a sense of true German heritage.
The market is popular with visitors who are on Frankfurt city breaks, as Worms is only a short distance from this cosmopolitan city.
