Christmas stroll through the gingerbread village
On the Gänsemarkt around the Lessing monument, a fairytale village of gingerbread houses is being created.
Visitors are greeted by a large gate, beautifully decorated in gingerbread style. Anyone strolling past the gingerbread houses can feel like Hansel and Gretel. The little houses sell handicrafts, high-quality natural cosmetics and organic goods. Each cottage is individually and lovingly designed and cozily lit. Although all of the stalls are made of wood and other natural materials, they look absolutely stunning.
Culinary and cultural Christmas journey
A stroll through the traditional market around the Lessing Monument is also like a culinary and cultural Christmas fairytale. Visitors are treated to classics such as suckling pig, tarte flambée, bratwurst, lard cookies, roasted almonds, gingerbread, Feuerzangenbowle, punch and mulled wine. There is also goose on a spit with dumplings and red cabbage.
The famous poet Gotthold Ephraim Lessing also plays a role. For example, there are Christmas tree baubles with his portrait as well as text panels with quotes that invite you to take a literary tour.This content has been machine translated.
