The eight most beautiful Christmas markets in the Harz in 2012
For many it's the most wonderful time of the year when the Christmas markets in the Harz offer the smell of mulled wine, roasted almonds, ginger bread and candy floss. Candle light and pine tree decorations light up the early evening hours and children listen to magical stories. A peaceful and relaxed atmosphere away from the hectic day to day life. Christmas is just around the corner - Merry Christmas in the Harz.
Maybe you would like the loving tradition to celebrate the pre Christmas season with family, friends or work colleagues to escape the daily routine? Why not book a holiday or short break in the Harz, in the romantic and enchanting magical snowy mountains.
The Harz offers more than any other region a great choice of Christmas markets. The Harzer Christmas markets and winter markets offer something special: the only true "Winter Forest" in Goslar, the largest arch in Nordhausen, the underground world of the World Cultural Heritage Site Rammelsberg in Goslar illuminated with candles and the famous "Christmas in the court yards" which compliments the Christmas market Quedlinburg .
The relexa hotel Harz-Wald Braunlage is the ideal and central starting point for excursions during the Christmas season in the Harz mountain. Our recommendation: Relax for a few days during a holiday in the Harz mountains and just visit Christmas markets as you like.
