The Alsfeld Christmas Market, an annual festival held during Advent, is a real highlight in Upper Hesse. Set against the picturesque backdrop of Alsfeld's market square, renowned for its impressive timber-framed buildings and the Walpurgis Church, a Christmas wonderland unfolds, attracting visitors from near and far..

Organized by the Magistrate of the City of Alsfeld, the market offers much more than just shopping opportunities. The lovingly decorated market stalls, spread throughout the entire market square, are a feast for the eyes. Visitors can expect a variety of attractions such as a children's carousel and a diverse musical stage program, which further enhances the festive mood. Traditional delicacies and drinks take care of the physical well-being. From homemade stews and Alsfeld potato bratwurst to fresh Belgian waffles and roasted almonds, as well as regional specialties – there's something for every taste. Warm drinks like mulled wine, vintner's mulled wine, hot Aperol, winter beer, and various spirits provide cozy warmth from within.

Alsfeld is distinguished by its impressive historical city center. This city offers charming, winding alleys, the famous Alsfeld Fairy Tale House, and over 400 well-preserved timber-framed houses, as well as a world-famous town hall. The town hall is centrally located in the market square, with a stone ground floor and above it, three timber-framed stories with bay windows. From the covered roof of the town hall, two small towers protrude. The town hall seamlessly blends into the beautiful old town with its timber-framed buildings and historical structures. An interesting fact about Alsfeld: The town is associated with the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. There's a legend that the famous red cap of the girl in the fairy tales was inspired by the traditional costumes in Alsfeld.

Parking is available outside the city center, allowing visitors to arrive conveniently. In conclusion, the Alsfeld Christmas Market is not just a place for shopping and entertainment, but also a meeting point that strengthens the community and celebrates the pre-Christmas season in a special way.
