Experience Wiesbaden during the Twinkling Star Christmas Market

Twinkling Star Christmas Market

28 Nov - 23 Dec 2017

When the colours blue and gold take over the scene in the cosy light of the pre-Christmas season and transform the place in a miraculous way, the time has come for the ‘Wiesbaden Twinkling Star Christmas Market.'

At the Schlossplatz (palace square) in Wiesbaden, amidst the picturesque setting of the impressive parliament building of the Hessian State Parliament, Landtag, the town hall and the stately church Marktkirche, more than 130 stall-keepers offer their goods to delve among, discover and taste, every year over the four weeks before Christmas. Brightly lit ten metres high lilies, the symbol of the Wiesbaden city coat of arms, are pointing the way to a world full of artistic craftwork, ceramics and glass art, as well as culinary treats and tempting rides. A particular eye catcher is, next to a Christmas crèche with life-size figures, the Christmas tree in front of the town hall, shining with the light of about 3,000 environmentally friendly light-bulbs and decorated with about 1,000 blue and golden ribbons.

Another highlight is the huge Christmas tree located in the entrance hall of the Kurhaus Wiesbaden, which is made out of 2,000 winter roses.

Opening hours:
Mon - Thur 10.30 - 21.00
Fri - Sat 10.30 - 21.30
Sun 12.00 - 21.00

'Eiszeit' - Ice Skating in a Setting Full of Atmosphere
Another highlight in the pre-Christmas period is the “Eiszeit” with its around 800 sqm ice rink and two curling rinks in the Warmer Damm park in front of the Hessian State Theatre.

Lovely decorated stands invite you to take a break between skating circuits. The stalls offer mulled wine, crêpes and grilled delicacies, and in addition, the ca. 100 sqm ski lodge is back again this year to warm up in. This lodge is also available for corporate and Christmas events.
