Christmas Market in Stuttgart, with more than 250 stalls, is surely one of the largest in Europe, and its oldest indeed, boasting a 300 years tradition.

The market lies between the Castle and the church, and keeps fascinating visitors with its lights, colors, smells of cinnamon and vanilla. The courtyard in the Old Palace resonates with Christmas songs, while a huge spruce stands out in the square.
Food stands offer incredible delicacies, from sweets and cakes to mulled wine, roasted almonds and ginger bread, to Svevian specialties.

Children

Children at the Town hall

During Christmas Markets children have a special place at disposal to play and have fun: the Town Hall. On the first floor some professional operators will take care of children with games, books and an extra program full of surprises.
A steam locomotive and carrousel will also be available for the young visitors.

 

Events

In the weeks preceding Christmas, the city tinges with magic. The main streets of the Old Town are filled up with decorations. Christmas gifts, crystal balls and ornaments peep out of every house. The scents of vin brulè, cinnamon and spices mix up together and spread all around the old town, where one of the most traditional Christmas Markets takes place, with a stunning 250 stands! This is also a good chance to discover Bavaria, with its flavours and tastes.
