The Christmas atmosphere extends across many central squares (the market square, Ernst-Ludwig-Platz, Friedensplatz and Luisenplatz) as well as into the Carree and Schlosshof courtyards. Darmstadt's festivities are distinctly international, with visitors from twin towns. Craftwork from Liepaja, Latvia, culinary specialities such as Langos from Hungary or wine and cheese from Saanen, Switzerland turn up the magic factor. At the market square, music plays on the open-air stage, and Santa arrives in his carriage on 6 December. Guides will take you on Christmas tours. And there’s a lot more for you to discover here.
