Minden's Christmas market stretches all the way from the market square along Obermarktstrasse to lower Bäckerstrasse. It's always a great event, with fire eaters and ice sculptors, trumpeters, St. Nicholas, the German equivalent of Punch and Judy and Christmas music by various ensembles providing just some of the excitement. A guided tour with a seasonal slant is a great way to explore the history of this 1,200-year-old town. Pure romance awaits you on the candlelit evening when electric light bows down to the light of candles. While the Christmas pyramid rotates, glide before it on your skates over the floodlit skating rink.
