Beautiful Altmarkt square with its historical town houses and the old town hall provides the setting for the festively illuminated Christmas market in Plauen, which has an enormous Christmas pyramid, a huge Christmas tree and a programme of seasonal entertainment on stage. Or head to neighbouring Klostermarkt square to see the 'moss man' festival, an unusual yuletide tradition.
