Romit Theophilus, Director, German National Tourist Office in India, highlighted the significance of Christmas markets in Germany and encouraged Indian travellers to visit during the winter season and beyond. “Germany’s Christmas markets are a true representation of German tradition and culture. The festive atmosphere, the aroma of mulled wine and gingerbread, and the beautifully lit streets create an unforgettable experience. We invite Indian travellers to explore these markets and immerse themselves in the rich history and traditions of Germany,” Theophilus  said.

GNTO says that this year Germany is quickening its journey towards sustainability where it aims to implement sustainable practices as well as to promote locally sourced, organic goods. Visitors can also venture beyond the festive villages to experience a winter wonderland committed to eco-friendly enjoyment, featuring serene snow walks, spirited torchlight hikes, and the warmth of shared Christmas traditions.

Listing some of the most well-known attractions, GNTO says that the Nuremberg Christkindlesmarkt (December 1-24) in Nuremberg is known for lebkuchen (gingerbread) and hosts more than 200 local businesses throughout, while Berlin’s WeihnachtsZauber (November 27 to December 31) is held at the picturesque Gendarmenmarkt.

The statement adds that in Cologne, Heinzels Wintermärchen (November 27 to December 24) is set right outside the city’s gothic cathedral and has two sections, the old market and new market, the latter’s highlight being a huge outdoor ice rink.
