The centre of Stuttgart is transformed into a magical winter wonderland during Advent. More than 280 uniquely charming and lavishly decorated Christmas stands tempt visitors from all over the world. Christmas concerts on the steps up to the town hall and in the inner courtyard of the Old Castle will draw you into their path with their festive ambience. Especially children love the nativity scenes, the giant nutcracker and the many other attractions in Weihnachtskinderland, where they can paint and bake to their heart’s content. Try the famous Stuttgart Hutzelbrot with its many fruits – it’s a real treat. Still more unusual delicacies are promised by the Finnish Christmas village with grilled salmon, Reindeer slices in sauce, and Glögi - a mulled berry wine. If you’re still feeling cold after that, warm up in the pavilion next to a log fire crackling away in a brazier. If you’re after a special gift, you’re sure to find it in the antiques market on Karlsplatz.
