Bathed in a warm festive glow, the enchanting old quarter with its historical buildings and ensemble of St. Mary's Cathedral and the Church of St. Severus provides a magnificent setting for the Erfurt Christmas market. One of Germany's most beautiful Christmas markets and the largest in Thuringia, it features a twelve-metre-high Christmas pyramid, a Nativity scene with almost life-size handcarved figures and much more besides. Accompany Father Christmas, Mother Christmas or an angel on a historical tour of the city.
