Advent Christmas Markets Rhine-Neckar region

Advent, Advent, ein Lichtlein brennt

Every year, Christmas markets spring up around Germany in the weeks before the holidays, signaling the beginning of Advent. 

Germany’s Christmas markets are famous all over the world.  Even the smallest community would have its own market.  Larger towns and cities would boast of a few.  Through the years, each market has stayed true to its own particularities, with each specializing on local delicacies and traditional products.   In the past, only local tradesmen were allowed to sell their wares at the city’s market, which led to the distinctive regional character of today’s markets.

Even today, they serve as a festive meeting place for locals and a market for homemade Christmas ornaments and decorations.  The mulled wine is brewing, the lights are up, and visitors spend the evening strolling through their very own winter wonderland.
