From 25 November to 22 December 2020, the market will be open every day from 12am to 9pm ). Popular attractions are the world’s largest music box in front of the theatre and family Telsemeyer’s almost 100-year-old, traditional carousel in front of the city hall of the Westphalian peace. A mug of mulled wine, roasted almonds and a cheesy sausage are a must for every visit to Osnabrück’s Christmas market.
