This delightful Christmas and New Year market is held in front of the “Old Mint” (Alten Münze) in the famous Maximilianstrasse, with a view of the romantic imperial cathedral (Kaiserdom). At the heart of the action are stalls hosted by eight towns twinned with Speyer from as far away as Rwanda. You can watch the artists and craftsmen at work in the marquees in the town hall courtyard, and can purchase any pieces that take your eye. On the 7th and 15th December, the Old Gate (Altpörtel), one of the highest city gates in Germany, is lit up by a dramatic curtain of ‘Bengal Fire’ as the Christmas trumpets sound out.
