Holidays in Germany: The Christmas Market at Baden-BadenAugust 8, 2010 By: Jena Tesse Fox
If your clients want an old-fashioned, very traditional Christmas experience, suggest they visit Germany, where the Baden-Baden Christmas Market will run from November 23 to December 26.
The Baden-Baden Christkindelmarkt has more than 100 decorated stalls offering local crafts, wood carvings, toys, arts and other special holiday gift items. Visitors can enjoy a glass of gluehwein, taste some local holiday delicacies and listen to a variety of choirs, orchestras and bands performing daily on the stage in front of the Kurhaus. (Even better: The Kurhaus and the colonnadest are traditionally lit up by thousands of lights over the Advent period).
To warm up after a day (or an hour) strolling the stalls, visit the Caracalla Spa—open daily from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm—where 12 natural springs rise from the depths of 6,500 feet to provide an unforgettable bathing experience in a large glass temple. The spa has a romantic hot and cold rock grotto, bubbling whirl pools, waterfalls, wave-pools, water jets and a newly designed sauna complex.
