Fairytale christmas market Kassel

| Christmas market

The Fairy Tale Christmas Market in Kassel is an annual highlight that sends visitors' hearts racing during the contemplative Advent season from the end of November until just before New Year's Eve. The market has its roots in the region's long tradition, closely intertwined with the world-famous tales of the Brothers Grimm. Since its first event, the market has made it its mission to focus on a different Grimm fairy tale each year..

This festive spectacle is organized by Kassel Marketing GmbH, which knows how to transform the city into a sparkling Christmas wonderland. Friedrichsplatz serves as a picturesque backdrop, supported by historical buildings that give the market a unique atmosphere. The market itself stretches from Königsplatz to Friedrichsplatz, offering a variety of market stalls that extend far into the city.

Visitors to Kassel's Fairy Tale Christmas Market can look forward to numerous special features: a Ferris wheel offering breathtaking views, the fairy tale forest inviting you to linger, and the world's largest fairy tale pyramid are just some of the highlights. The popular fairy tale slide provides thrills, while the decorated stalls with their original gift ideas invite browsing.

Culinary-wise, the market offers a rich selection, from hot mulled wine and the scent of roasted almonds to bright red candied apples, which, unlike in fairy tales, can be enjoyed without worry. This makes the Fairy Tale Christmas Market in Kassel one of the most worth visiting markets in the country – not just for fairy tale lovers, but for anyone who wants to fully enjoy the special pre-Christmas atmosphere.

Those still looking for original gift ideas will certainly find something in the magically decorated stalls – and the many food stands can fulfill almost any culinary wish. The scent of mulled wine, gingerbread, and roasted almonds invites you to linger, and a varied supporting program spreads Christmas cheer.

The Fairytale christmas market in Kassel took place from Monday, 27. November to Saturday, 30. December 2023.
