Hanover Christmas market
Do your Christmas shopping in style in one of Germany's largest pedestrianised areas. Not one but three Christmas markets await: in the historic old town around the Marktkirche and on Ballhofplatz, in front of the central station (Ernst-August-Platz), and in the Lister Meile pedestrianised area. The traditional Christmas market in the old town is also home to the Finnish Christmas village. If the Maschsee lake freezes over, visitors can ice skate on it.
