Christmas at the Gänsemarkt

Gingerbread village around the lessing monument

This is unprecedented: the beloved Christmas market at the Gänsemarkt is full of gingerbread huts – pretty enough to eat!

The Christmas market at Gänsemarkt is like an idyllic village of gingerbread cottages. The sales stands, designed with great attention to detail, and the large entrance gate are real eye-catchers and invite you to take a family Christmas stroll.

From gingerbread to Lessing

The Christmas market at Gänsemarkt also offers specialities from suckling pig to gingerbread, imaginative decorations and handcrafted highlights. All this is embedded in a poetic Christmas concept in which the famous poet Lessing, whose monument adorns the Gänsemarkt, plays an important role. For example, there are Christmas tree balls with his portrait as well as text panels with quotations.
