Especially romantic is the Christmas market in Gartow on the castle courtyard of the Count of Bernstorff. All the windows of the castle are lit with candles, a huge Christmas tree stands in the courtyard, in the count's kitchen soup and venison roast, and in front of the count's kitchen soup and venison sizzle, and in front of the count's estate are works by artisans: wooden toys, leather goods, Glass jewelry, ceramics and much that is suitable as a gift for the family and dear friends. The work comes from the workshops and studios around Gartow. It smells of spicy almonds, delicious mulled wine, fresh pastries and other delicacies and treats. At the campfire there are apples for the little connoisseurs to roast themselves. In addition, the trombone choir with its music and St. Nicholas provides the perfect Advent atmosphere.
