Advent is the perfect time for a visit to Wetzlar's old town with its small, half-timbered houses and beautiful baroque buildings. The area around the cathedral is the site of the Wetzlar Christmas Market, with a permanent hut at the center. You can enjoy the outdoors from covered seating, or take a spin on the ice rink against the impressive backdrop of the cathedral. Arts and crafts are on display in the second market square, Schillerplatz. Schillerplatz is where a well-known woodcarver, a basket-maker and a broom-maker set up shop. It is also home to the temporary glass-blowing workshop, where a range of glass-blowers produce works of art stage by careful stage.
