Numerous Christmas markets spread the Christmas spirit in the city on the River Leine. In the historic Old Town and around the Marktkirche the traditional Christmas market beckons with 170 stalls in an atmospheric ambience. The historic Christmas village, where you can dive into the medieval lives of glass blowers, potters and chandlers is fascinating. Another highlight is the Finnish Christmas village on Ballhofplatz with a Lapland tent, Finnish specialities and crafts. Discover two more Christmas markets: at the main station and in the Lister Meile. By turning the wishing ring at the Oskar Winter fountain in the middle of the fir wood on Holzmarkt, your wishes will be fulfilled in the wishing well wood. A delight for the eyes and ears is the varied stage programme. Children’s eyes go wide before the puppet actors, glass painters, fairytale tellers and on the merry-go-rounds. They become little bakers of their own in the Christmas bakery. Hannover awaits you in the glow of Christmas. Let yourself be abducted on a tour through the Christmas ambience by local guides.
