The city center has been transformed into a Christmas paradise, decorated with beautiful lights, decorations and stalls. For active visitors there are walks and for lovers of culture there is street theater, music and dance to behold.

In addition, beautiful music concerts are given in the churches. At various times during the day the goose herders and sheep herders walk across the markets, after which they stow their animals between the stalls again. In addition to the special products in the many stalls, shops and restaurants are also open. They do their utmost to give you an unforgettable day. One of the highlights during this Christmas market is the medieval town hall that is illuminated by 15,000 candles. Visitors and artists sing Christmas carols here together, creating an unprecedented solidarity. Christmas stories are also read aloud. The entertainment continues until well into the evening!

When it gets dark, the lights do not turn on, but in the old center only candles are lit.
