Neustadt Illuminations

Different from all the rest
How exhilarating! A Christmas fair doesn’t have to conform to a set pattern – though that doesn’t mean the Neustadt Illuminations are in any way out of character. On the contrary: over the past three years, Neustadt has come up with a great alternative. It is creative, eccentric and meticulously staged. Unusual gift ideas, nothing off the shelf, and a lot to laugh about. The Neustädter Gelichter are an impressive display of light. The stalls sell ‘Schwipsbogen’ (the Neustadt version of the Christmas arch), locally grown Christmas trees, handmade jewellery, quality printed matter, creatively designed products and delicious refreshments. Highly recommended!
