Wittenberg's Christmas market has an inimitable setting on the market square, framed by impressive town houses and the church where Luther used to preach, which also has a winged altar by Lucas Cranach the Elder. Here, in the Advent courtyards and in the events programme, Christmas is still celebrated in true style. Not to be missed is the Martin Luther Nativity play at the Church of St. Mary.
