Wismar's historical market square – with its brightly illuminated town hall, ornate fountain and fine old gabled houses – is transformed into a Christmas wonderland. For the opening ceremony, Father Christmas arrives at the old harbour and is brought to the market square in a horse-drawn carriage followed by a huge crowd. There is brass music from the balcony of the town hall. You can sample bread baked in stone ovens and watch the blacksmith at work. Kids will love the activities at the children's Christmas market.
