Speyer's delightful Christmas market is arranged in front of the Old Mint in Maximilianstrasse. At the heart of the action are stalls hosted by eight towns twinned with Speyer from as far away as Rwanda. In the marquees in the town hall courtyard you can watch the artists and artisans at work. A spectacular experience is when the Old Gate, one of the tallest town gates in Germany, is lit up by a dramatic curtain of Bengal fire as the Christmas trumpets sound.
