Hannover has no fewer than three Christmas markets to get you in the festive spirit. As well as the traditional Christmas market with 150 stalls arranged around the market church and in the old quarter, there is a medieval-themed Christmas village with glassblowers, potters and candlemakers. Specialities from Finland can be sampled at the Finnish Christmas village on Ballhofplatz square.
