Christmas Markets


An enchanting, life-size Nativity scene; copyright: Touristik Centrale Mainz
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. From Höfchen to Liebfrauenplatz, beneath a canopy of glittering lights, all you can see are smiling faces as people stroll around enjoying the festive fun. The Nativity scene carved from limewood with its life-size figures and the eleven-metre Christmas pyramid are two of the most popular attractions. A seasonal programme of music, entertainment and traditional carol singing features on the Christmas stage.
