Cottbus Christmas market, one of the prettiest and most traditional in Lusatia, is held on the old market square, extending to Postparkplatz and the square in front of the Heron bookstore. A huge Christmas pyramid and a programme of seasonal entertainment create a festive mood. Herrnhut stars, which are only made in Cottbus, make excellent souvenirs.
