Every year, the Idstein Christmas market attracts an increasing number of happy visitors enjoying the cosy atmosphere of Idstein's old town full of half-timbered houses.

Let yourself be charmed by the aromas of mulled wine, grilled sausages, sugared almonds, hot chestnuts and other treats. Get the real feel of magic when you meet the Holy Family in the living crib.


If you are tired of commercialism, you should go for walk through the romantic and peaceful Idstein X-mas market. Here, you can listen to Christmas carols performed by a trombone choir, a brass quartet and other wind players. You are invited to savor the romantic ambience of lovely decorated wooden huts while thousands of lights are twinkling in the dark. Maybe you already find some wonderful Christmas gifts, such as crib figurines, candles, craftworks or delicious homemade "Lebkuchen" (gingerbread biscuits).


Your children will love the ride on various carousels. As in previous years, both — parents and kids — will have the possibility to caress a "real" angel's wing on Saturday and Sunday. In the underpass beneath city hall, the "living crib" with its Holy Family, with angel, king, shepherd and several animals put a smile not only on children's eyes.

Enjoy three days Christmas as in olden days!
