FROM 25.11. TO 30.12. DAILY* FROM 11 A.M. TO 8 P.M.


... where is the most beautiful Christmas market all year round? We don't know what the twinkling stars would answer to this question - but one thing is certain: the most magical Christmas market shines in Kassel! Because only here has the pre-Christmas market hustle and bustle been linked to the world-famous tales of the Brothers Grimm for a long time. Every year, therefore, a different one of the popular fairy tales takes center stage at the Kassel Fairy Tale Christmas Market. In 2024 it is - of course - Sterntaler!


This year, the fairytale Christmas market will open on November 25 and will run until December 30, inviting visitors to spend romantic hours together and sociable evenings with friends and colleagues. In addition to hot mulled wine and the scent of almonds, you can of course expect everything else that has made the Kassel Fairytale Christmas Market the most popular of its kind in Hesse: Between Königsplatz and Friedrichsplatz, Kassel's city center is transformed into a sparkling sea of lights, which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of from the Ferris wheel. In the cozy fairytale forest, you can spend the evening in a rustic atmosphere, while the world's largest fairytale pyramid greets you from afar. The popular fairytale slide is back again this year, inviting you to take a rapid slide down the stairway! 

If you are still looking for original gift ideas, you are guaranteed to find something in the fairy-tale decorated stalls - and you can also fulfill almost every culinary wish at the many food stalls. Of course, there's no need to shy away from the bright red apples of paradise - because they're definitely not prepared by Snow White's wicked stepmother!

Christmas magic at lofty heights



See Santa Claus flying through the air in his reindeer sleigh: This dream comes true at the Kassel Fairytale Christmas Market! Once again this year, the internationally renowned high-wire artists Falko Traber and his son Fernando will be presenting their spectacular show daily at 4.30 p.m. and 7 p.m. in Kassel city centre, near GALERIA. The project is supported by the City Management of the City of Kassel.
