The Christmas market on Königsplatz and Friedrichsplatz squares in Kassel on the German Fairytale Route is a fairytale experience in more ways than one. Not only does it have the world's largest fairytale pyramid, but it also has a magical fairytale forest that is a child's dream come true. Other attractions include a huge free-standing Advent calendar, a daily programme of stage entertainment, a traditional Alpine hut and the 'cheese house' for hearty food and drink.
