'Magic mirror on the wall, who's the fairest one of all'The hometown of the Brother Grimm's has certainly one of the most magical Christmas markets in the country and this year's featured fairy tale is fittingly the one from Snow White. So the answer is easy, it's the Kassel Fairy Tale Christmas Market, where the spirit of Christmas intertwines with the magic of fairy tales, creating an enchanting wonderland for visitors of all ages.
Twice a day, a majestic flying Santa Claus and his reindeer hover over the Friedrichsplatz. Children and adults alike gaze in wonder as Santa's sleigh glides through the air, a true embodiment of the holiday magic.
For those seeking a thrill, an artificial slide takes you on a journey through a winter wonderland for 70 meters down the Treppenstrasse.
So while you explore the market, you'll encounter stalls adorned with the charm of classic Brother Grimm fairy tales – Hansel and Gretel's gingerbread house, Cinderella's carriage, and Little Red Riding Hood's basket of goodies. Vendors dressed as fairy tale characters offer a variety of festive treats, from warm mulled wine to gingerbread cookies, creating a sensory experience that transports you to a storybook world.
The Kasseler Märchenweihnachtsmarkt is not just a market; it's a magical celebration where the spirit of Christmas and the enchantment of fairy tales come together to create lasting memories for all who enter.
