Glistening Christmassy stalls with lovingly decorated roofs, sparkling lights and an atmospheric programme of events – the Stuttgart Christmas Market is the perfect place to while away some time from 23 November to 23 December 2016.

Enjoy the 31-day festive season atmosphere in the state capital of Baden Württemberg. Set in the middle of the city centre, the long-established and magnificent array of stalls stretches from the “Neuen Schloss” and “Königsbau” to the “Karlsplatz” and “Schillerplatz” squares with the “Alten Schloss” and then on to the “Marktplatz” square via the “Stiftskirche” church.

We look forward to welcoming you at one of the biggest and oldest Christmas Markets in Europe.
