The 1,200-year-old city and regional capital of Magdeburg pulls out all the stops for its Christmas market, which is set against the impressive backdrop of the historical town hall and the statue of the Magdeburg Horseman. Magdeburg at Christmas isn't just for grown-ups; an exciting children's programme entertains kids of all ages. There is even more to discover at 'Advent in the vaults' at the Festung Mark centre. First to the contemporary Christmas market, then the historical Christmas market.
