‘Let us be happy and cheerful and rejoice from our heart!’ The most charming time of the year is just around the corner, children can hardly wait to open the next door on their Advent calendars and the smell of freshly-baked Christmas biscuits is wafting from kitchens throughout the country. Do you also love this time of year? Then come to Baden-Baden and visit one of the prettiest Christmas markets in Germany!
From 24th November to 30th December 2014 it’s time to immerse yourself again in a very special winter fairy tale. Baden-Baden’s Christmas market is steeped in tradition and its countless charming attractions delight all who visit. There is something here for all age groups and one of the main attractions for many years now has been the nativity scene in front of the Kurhaus featuring live animals!
Come and soak up the pre-Christmas atmosphere and let the one hundred or so festively decorated wooden cabins provide you with all the inspiration you need for your Christmas present ideas. It is such an inviting setting. On the main stage, live, daily performances take place and there’s a host of things to do for the younger ones among us. For instance, in a specially created bakery, children can bake Christmas biscuits and proudly take them home afterwards. Monday is romantic evening when the entire market is transformed into a fascinating sea of glittering lights!
At the Christmas market in Baden-Baden all your wishes will be granted! With the smell of fresh gingerbread wafting through the air and mugs of hot mulled wine and bags of hot chestnuts in your hands, it’s the perfect place to put you in the mood for Christmas. And those of you with an unfulfilled wish can always pen a quick letter to Father Christmas and post it personally in the special letterbox at the market called the ‘Himmelsbriefkasten’. You never know; your wish may even be granted!
I look forward to enjoying your company during the Advent season!
Yours Sascha Domm
