Winter in the Harz

As soon as the first snowflakes touch the ground, not only the Harz Mountains turn into an El Dorado for nature lovers and active holidaymakers.

Steaming mulled wine is a must and you can drink it at one of Lower Saxony’s most beautiful traditional Christmas markets , such as the Christmas Forest in Goslar or the markets in Hildesheim, Hannover, Oldenburg or Celle, which attract many visitors every year. Alongside the large Christmas markets, Lower Saxony also offers a great number of smaller, romantic markets spreading a warm glow between historical buildings and old timber- framed houses. Institutions such as the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Marienburg Castle or the Hannover Adventure Zoo in Hannover entertain their guests with winter stagings and individual Christmas markets each year.
