Erfurt is located in central Germany, about 100 km South West Leipzig. It holds a festive Christmas Market from end November till Christmas. The market takes place in the Cathedral Square (Domplatz) which is situated in the ancient, preserved medieval center.
The architectonic Cathedral building is a beautiful setting for the illuminated market’s booths. The magnificent picture is completed with hundreds of candles that decorate the giant Christmas tree.
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.
The unique tree is 25 meters high with a Christmas pyramid of 12 meters high is located on its side. Over 200 booths are selling souvenirs, decorations and presents for Christmas.
The square is wrapped with the beautiful lights, the holiday music and the smell of the hot wine (Gluhwein) which warms the visitor’s body in the cold nights of December. This is an unforgettable experience for all the family.
