Wiesbaden's Christmas market on the picturesque Schlossplatz square is set against the backdrop of the old and new town hall, the imposing market church and Hessen's regional assembly building. Four gates in the shape of lilies form the entrances to the market, where the oriental-style stalls decked out in blue and gold are a treasure trove of arts and crafts.
