There's an enchanting atmosphere and around 35 stalls at this charming Christmas market, not to mention mouthwatering seasonal treats, captivating concerts and a fairytale forest with individually decorated Christmas trees. It has lots of attractions just for kids, including the children's bakery, magic games, Punch and Judy shows, drumming classes and a writing workshop. St. Nicholas and his helper also make an appearance to hand out little presents. The enormous Advent calendar on the front of a grand town house is a marvellous sight, and Straubing has a fascinating Nativity trail, which links 22 displays in the churches and squares in the town centre.
