Hildesheim Christmas market
During Christmas season the Hildesheim Christmas market attracts visitors with Christmas scents and colorful lights. Situated between the historic market square, the square "an der Lilie" and the Pferdemarkt (horse market) this Christmas market offers again this year around 70 festively decorated stalls and certainly the odd novelty and many highlights for the visitors.
Again this year as a special highlight the traditional heart of the Christmas market, the historic market square, presents the Christmas pyramid. In addition to arts and crafts and culinary Christmas market stalls you find around the market eight adorable small wooden huts, which are designed in the style of old half-timbered Hildesheimer buildings. Here you can find special presents, craft accessories and Christmas items. Several large pine trees also ensure the winter Christmas atmosphere.
The 15-metre high Christmas tree set against the magnificent backdrop of the square with the famous Knochenhauer-Amtshaus (Guildhall) provides a festive atmosphere. In addition visitors can admire an approximately 10-metre-high illuminated pyramid. The whole Christmas market is set on pedestrianised area with numerous stalls, surrounded by tall pine trees, where you can stroll leisurely and relax with mulled wine and ginger bread. In the "Platz an der Lilie" are the children fair grounds and the children's carousel.
