Christmas pyramids and an Advent boat trip

The half-timbered houses and unique renaissance buildings on the Weser river provide a wonderful backdrop for visitors to Hameln (Hamelin) Christmas market. 70 festively-decorated stalls are perfect for a stroll around the Hochzeitshaus (Wedding House) and Marktkirche (Market Church). Choirs and musical groups perform on the terrace of the Hochzeitshaus. The 11-metre Christmas pyramid is a big attraction, while further highlights include the giant Advent calendar, Advent boat rides on the Weser river and glass-blowing.
