The annual Christmas markets of Hanseatic Luebeck take place in the old quarter around the historical town hall and Koberg, with fairy lights and Christmas trees adorning the streets. There is an enchanting Christmas fairy-tale forest outside St. Mary's Church with more than 20 lovingly handmade stalls which
tell the stories of the Brothers Grimm. In addition there is also an excellent craft market in the vaults
of the old Holy Spirit Hospital plus don't miss the Iceworld snow and ice sculpture festival in the heart of the town centre.
