Wolfsburg is an old city with lots of interesting attractions and fascinating history. It has many interesting features that never cease to amaze foreign guests. The most favorite holiday of all locals is Christmas, for which they begin to prepare a few weeks before the holy date. The grandiose Weihnachtsmarkt fair opens in the market square near the City Hall a month before the holiday. Here you can buy interesting Christmas gifts, sweets and children's toys.
These pre-holiday days are the happiest time for children because along with colorful fairs there is a huge number of rides and playgrounds in the city. While kids are trying out the rides in action, parents can taste festive drinks and treats at the nearest cafe.
One of the most unusual toys that can be found at Christmas fairs is Advent Kalendar. This is a flat cardboard box made in the shape of a house with many windows. Candies are placed inside the box, which can only be opened on the day indicated on the first window. The child should open one window and eat a candy every day. When the chocolates in the box run out, the long-awaited Christmas will come. Such original calendars are very popular among locals, they can be seen in every home.
