Alsfeld Christmas market

Destination Germany is famous for its beautiful Christmas markets, which every year attract visitors from around the world in search of the ultimate festive experience.

Until 16 December 2012 the Alsfeld Christmas market will be enchanting visitors with its romantic-medieval setting of timber-framed buildings, beautifully decorated stalls and even appearances from St. Nicholas and Mother Hulda. As well as all that, there are lots of artisans showcasing their skills, from candlemakers and 'tree trunk designers' to blacksmiths forging lucky horseshoes – guaranteed to impress market-goers young and old.
