3rd to 12th December 2016
Visit the mysterious Christmas Market in Ravenna Gorge (Ravennaschlucht), occupying a space somewhere between peaceful hush and savage wildness.
The Höllental (Hell's Valley), which Marie-Antoinette traversed with her bridal procession, and in which Johann Wolfgang von Goethe spent the night, is a valley of myths and legends, but also part of local history. It tells the story of people who have lived here over the centuries.
On four weekends in Advent, this mystical gorge steeped in history is also host to the Black Forest Highlands Christmas Market – with more than 40 stalls offering the finest handicrafts, unusual gift ideas and regional products. Steep, forested hills, the Galgenbühl knoll near the Hofgut Sternen guest house, and the masterpiece of engineering that is the 40-metre high viaduct of the Höllental Railway is the backdrop for this market.
