The Reiterlesmarkt, in its idyllic setting between the town hall, St. Jacob's Church and Grüner Markt, is acknowledged as one of Germany's prettiest Christmas markets. Readings of Christmas stories and special deals at hotels and B&Bs are just two of the many reasons to start planning your trip to this romantic wonderland. There are activities for kids at the 'gingerbread house' and they can also join the children's lantern procession. The German Christmas museum is well worth a visit, too.
