Christmas Markets


Once upon a time there was a Christmas market ...; copyright: kassel tourist GmbH
The Christmas market on Königsplatz and Friedrichsplatz squares in Kassel is a fairytale experience in more ways than one. Not only does it have the world's largest fairytale pyramid, but this year's theme in the heartland of the German Fairytale Route is 'Little Brother and Little Sister' by the Brothers Grimm. The many stands in the town centre offer arts and crafts of the highest quality and festive specialities that look as good as they taste. Kids will love the huge free-standing advent calendar with its daily programme of stage entertainment, the mysterious magic forest and the Christmas workshop where they can get creative. For hearty food and drink you have the 'cheese house' and the traditional Alpine hut. A fairytale Christmas world awaits you in the heart of Kassel.
