Baden-Baden's glittering Christmas market is held at the Lichtentaler Allee gardens and outside the festively illuminated Kurhaus. At 5pm on 24 November, the Christmas Angel arrives by carriage at the festive stage. Other highlights are the illustrated fairytale trail, the avenue of stained glass windows with huge backlit pictures and the programme of seasonal entertainment on the stage. The Theme Days are particularly atmospheric and attractive, such as the Romantic Day (Mondays), when the whole market is romantically illuminated with lamps and candles, or the Family Day (Wednesdays), when every stall presents attractive family offers. On December 6, at 5.00 p.m., St Nicolas floats onto the Himmelsbühne in a hot-air balloon carrying presents, much to the delight of the children. Other "children’s delights" are promised by the living nativity scene, the bakery and the “Heaven’s letter box”.
