Schwerin's Christmas market is centred around the atmospheric market square with its handsome brick-built cathedral, but it also extends to other historical squares in the old quarter and brightly lit lanes with timber-framed houses. Attractions include the 20-metre Christmas tree decorated with 1,000 lights, a Christmas pyramid, a 500m² ice rink with ice hockey and curling, an exhibition of Nativity scenes and the fairytale-themed Mecklenburgstrasse.
