Every year, from the second half of November until end December, Hamelin which is located 50 km from Hanover in mid Germany, holds a beautiful Christmas market that seems to emerge right from a fairy tale.

The market is located in the ancient Middle Ages quarter where its houses and the market church create a marvelous decoration to the charmed market. 

On the Christmas Market days accommodations can be fully booked, hence it is recommended to make a room’s reservations in advance in order to find a room in a reasonable price.

More than 70 wooden huts sell various handcrafts, presents and presents for the holiday side by side with hotdogs, hot chestnuts, candied almonds and apples, hot wine, Glühwein and punch that warm the heart and soul of the visitors in the cold winter nights.

Germany background and overview
As Europe's largest economy and second most populous nation, Germany remains a key member of the continent's economic, political, and defense organizations. European power struggles immersed Germany in two devastating World Wars in the first half of the 20th century and left the country occupied by the victorious Allied powers of the US, UK, France, and the Soviet Union in 1945. With the advent of the Cold War, two German states were formed in 1949: the western Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) and the eastern German Democratic Republic (GDR). The democratic FRG embedded itself in key Western economic and security organizations, the EC, which became the EU, and NATO, while the Communist GDR was on the front line of the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact. The decline of the USSR and the end of the Cold War allowed for German unification in 1990. Since then, Germany has expended considerable funds to bring Eastern productivity and wages up to Western standards. In January 1999, Germany and 10 other EU countries introduced a common European exchange currency, the euro.
