During the Advent season, Karlsruhe transforms into a magical Christmas city;  the inner city sparkles with thousands of lights, horse-drawn sleighs clatter across the cobblestone streets, imaginatively decorated shop windows invite passers-by to browse and shop, and the scents of cotton candy and roasted almonds waft through the air.

Stores, restaurants, churches, museums, galleries, libraries, theatres and music ensembles offer attractions and events for the whole family. Christmas city Karlsruhe offers the ultimate holiday experience for locals and guests alike – there is truly something for everyone.
