With its 287 stalls and a tradition of more than 300 years, Stuttgart christmas market is one of the loveliest in Germany and one of the oldest and largest of its kind in Europe. It was first documented in 1692, though its roots go back much further. The stalls stretch from the New Palace and the Königsbau, across Schiller Square with the Old Palace and the Collegiate Church, to the Marketplace. Ornately and lovingly decorated, with much attention to detail, they are Stuttgart Christmas Market's trademark, with a reputation that has spread far beyond the bounds of the city. The stallholders are rewarded for their pains with a prize awarded each year by a jury for the Christmas Market's most beautiful stall.
On the adjacent Karlsplatz visitors can sample Nordic specialities in the Finnish Christmas Village, such as Glögi (mulled wine), Finnish beer, salmon grilled on an open fire and reindeer ham. During Advent, Stuttgart's town hall is transformed into a gigantic Advent calendar. Each day a "door" is opened, revealing by degrees the coats of arms of Stuttgart's boroughs. The opening ceremony will take place at 6 pm on 27th November in the Renaissance inner courtyard of the Old Palace. Every evening there will also be a concert of Christmas music in the courtyard. Stuttgart Christmas Market is open daily from 10 am to 9 pm, and on Sundays from 11 am to 9 pm.
