Gengenbach Advent Calendar

Top choice christmas in Gengenbach

Every December, Gengenbach rekindles childhood memories of opening tiny windows when the Rathaus morphs into the world’s biggest Advent calendar. At 6pm daily, one of 24 windows is opened to reveal a festive scene. Previously, the tableaux have been painted by well-known artists and children’s-book illustrators including Marc Chagall, Andy Warhol and Tomi Ungerer.

From late November to 23 December, a Christmas market brings extra Yuletide sparkle, mulled wine and carols to the Marktplatz.
