Christmas Market Dates
25th November – 23rd December 2016
Welcome to the
Hamelin Christmas Market
Due to the historic background, the Hamelin Christmas Market can truly be described as a genuine Fairy Tale Market.
The Hamelin Christmas Market features over 70 festively decorated wooden huts; all clustered around the Wedding House, the Market Church and around the picturesque old quarter with it’s lovingly restored timber-framed houses and grand Weser Renaissance buildings.
Highlights of Hamelin's Christmas market are; the Nativity scene, which has real animals to stroke, a Christmas pyramid at only a mere 11 metres tall and a massive advents calendar on the Hochzeitshaus (Wedding House).
A recommended guided walk of Hamelin explores all the historic highlights and its beautiful Christmas Market. The 90 minute walk gives an in depth guide to German Christmas customs and traditions and finishes with a well deserved free hot drink of mulled wine. This tour can be booked, for only €10 per person, with the local Hamelin tourist information office.
In German the town of Hamelin is known as Hameln. The town is located only 45 minutes from Hannover city centre and is well served by twice-hourly S-Bahn services during the day .
