Black Forest Christmas Markets
Each year, the arrival of little wooden huts in the squares of Black Forest's towns and villages is a major event. The Christmas markets mark the return of time-honoured festivities. A world of delicious fragrances, delightfully, crafted artisan goods and lights quickly takes shape.

Freiburg - A magic atmosphere prevails in Freiburg, right in the heart of the historical old city, where young and old alike delight in a wide variety of traditional craft products, including glass blowing and colourful wooden toys. An aroma of mulled wine, grilled sausages, gingerbread biscuits and roast chestnuts wafts through the idyllic narrow streets. You'll find countless ideas for gifts - jewellery, puppets, ceramics, candles, Christmas tree decorations, plus a great deal more. You'll soon feel at home between the rustic wooden stalls, amidst the cosy golden glow of all the lights.
Baden- Baden - the internationally acclaimed spa and festival city, in the beautiful legendary Black Forest hills, will have a very special atmosphere with its Christkindelsmarkt, against the commandingly picturesque backdrop of the Kurhaus and the colonnades lit up by thousands of lights in the heart of the festively decorated old town. The Baden-Baden Christmas Market is not only a good meeting point, but also a place to celebrate the pre-Christmas period where people can get together and enjoy a glass of glühwein or punch. A variety of choirs, orchestras and bands will be performing daily on the stage in front of the Kurhaus to put the visitors from around the world in the Christmas mood.
