Paderborn's towering cathedral creates an illuminated backdrop and the perfect ambience for the town's Christmas market. There is so much to admire here - arts and crafts from all over Germany, a huge Advent calendar at the historical town hall and a 'living' Nativity scene to name but a few highlights. Enjoy a stroll through the Sterngasse, which is illuminated by the unique ensemble of large stars up to six meters. The popular “Paderborn Pastor’s Caps (Pfarrerskäppchen)“, the “Original Feuerzangenbowle (red wine punch)“ or Bratäpfel (baked apples), the juicy, sweet, international titbit, are real treats. Giant-sized Christmas bells immerse the Neue Platz in coloured light and create a particularly expressive atmosphere. The perfect framework for the peaceful, snug "Magic of the Bells" Christmas market.
