Paderborn's towering cathedral creates an illuminated backdrop and the perfect ambience for the town's Christmas market. There is so much to admire here - arts and crafts from all over Germany, a huge Advent calendar at the historical town hall and a 'living' Nativity scene to name but a few highlights. Treat your taste buds to the local pfarrerskäppchen pastries, baked apples and traditional hot drinks such as heisse Bäuerin, heisser Wilhelm and potent rum punch.
