Christmas Markets

Lights shaped like the lilies on the city's coat of arms, a splendidly decorated Christmas tree, festive aromas and Christmas music set the scene for Wiesbaden's annual Christmas market. Called the Sternschnuppenmarkt, it is set on picturesque Schlossplatz square against the backdrop of the old and new town hall and Hessen's regional assembly building. Four gates in the shape of lilies form the entrances to this fairytale scene. The oriental-style stalls decked out in blue and gold are a treasure trove of arts and crafts, some locally made. There's a wide range of products to choose from, including olive wood items, honey specialities, hand-blown glass art and sweet treats from the world's greatest confectioners. Kids are not the only ones whose eyes will light up at the sight of the old-fashioned carousels, the children's railway and life-size, wooden Nativity scene. Another big attraction is 'Eiszeit' (ice age): This 800 square meter ice rink offers ice skating, curling and much more besides.
