Osnabrück’s historical Christmas market, which ranks as one of Germany's prettiest, is held in the enchanting setting of the market square and in front of the cathedral. All manner of festive delights await in the beautifully illuminated old quarter. You can see the world's largest musical box, which plays 25 different Christmas songs, and a fully functional nutcracker that stands six metres tall. There is more Christmas magic to discover outside St. John's Church and a quiet, Renaissance-style Christmas market in the glow of lamps and candlelight near the Heger Tor gate.
