The historic market square in Mainz is a blaze of lights. The air is scented with a Christmassy mixture of roast almonds, gingerbread, hot chestnuts and mulled wine. Large and small visitors gladly let themselves be enchanted by this pre-Christmas atmosphere. On a stroll through Mainz Christmas Fair, the stress and hectic pace of everyday life are quickly forgotten.

Mannheim Christmas Market

Mannheim’s Christmas market is one of Germany’s biggest and best, attracting many thousands of visitors each year. The Mannheim Christmas market is centrally located, offering Christmas flair all around the historic water tower (Wasserturm) and right beside the equally historic Jugendstil gardens. Children will enjoy merry-go-rounds, a giant wheel and a children’s railway.
A stroll along narrow lanes known by romantic names such as Engelsgasse (Angel’s Lane) or Hirtengasse (Shepherd's Lane) is sure to put you in the Christmas spirit. Around 200 booths are lovingly decorated to look like little wooden houses where visitors will find a huge selection of gifts including handcrafts from all over the world, seasonal decorations and delicious food and drinks.
