Christmas Market in Hildesheim at the historic market square
23 November to 27 December 2020

The historic market square: this is where the heart of the Christmas market in Hildesheim beats. Here, the magnificent façades of the half-timbered houses and the smell of freshly baked gingerbread and mulled wine create a very special pre-Christmas atmosphere. And further festively decorated stalls invite you to come for a stroll around the square „Platz an der Lilie”.


At the Christmas market in Hildesheim is the outpost of the Christmas Post Office “Himmelsthür” – the oldest Christmas post office in Germany. Brilliant children’s eyes shine when they throw their self-painted letters and wishlist for the Santa Claus in the nostalgic mailbox.
