In the unique setting of the only green sandstone ensemble in the world, and the smart rows of half-timber houses, the impressive Christmas market greets you on the market square before the cathedral and Petrikirche. The lovingly arranged wooden stalls, illuminated by Herrenhut stars, fit harmoniously into the ensemble. Guides will take you on a culinary tour of the Christmas delicacies. If you’re looking for more gifts or the perfect thing for yourself, you’re bound to find it at “Shopping under the stars”. Meanwhile the kids can have fun baking cookies in the Christmas bakery. Every evening trumpeters in the towers call a dramatic end to the market.
