The Christmas market's 90 lovingly furnished wooden booths blend in harmoniously with the old quarter's unique green sandstone ensemble, the only one of its kind in the world. It's hard to imagine a more beautiful setting than the market square, the cathedral, St. Peter's Church and the lovely rows of half-timbered houses in between. Every evening, trumpeters mark the end of the day's proceedings. Artist Fritz Risken has Nativity scenes from around the world on display at his studio in Brunstein chapel, and tourist guides will be happy to take you on a culinary journey of discovery around the Christmas market.
