Festively illuminated museum ships provide the backdrop for the maritime Engelke Markt or 'Christmas Angel market' in the East Frisian seaport town of Emden. The highlight is the arrival by boat of Sinterklaas, the Dutch Santa Claus, and his helpers (3 December, 2pm). Why not go for a wintry twirl on the 450m² ice rink?
