An enchanting, life-sized Nativity scene
St. Martin’s Cathedral in Mainz has been the historical backdrop for the St. Nicholas Market for over 200 years. More than 100 stalls present a range of arts, crafts and culinary delights. The limewood-carved Nativity scene with life-size figures and the 11-metre Christmas pyramid are two of the more popular attractions. A seasonal programme of music, entertainment and traditional carol singing features on the Christmas stage.
