During the Advent season, Braunschweig's medieval Burgplatz square with its cathedral and castle is transformed into a glittering Christmas wonderland with over 140 stalls. Especially well-loved meeting places are the covered rafts in the castle moat, positioned on sparkling pebbles of glass that show the original course of the river Oker thanks to light effects. Still more highlights await you in this sparkling Christmas atmosphere like the culture week (14th – 22nd December) with traditional choral and instrumental concerts and Christmas songs as well as the Christmas workshop for kids. For magnificent views of this Christmas scene, climb the 61m town hall tower, either on a guided tour or under your own steam.
