The family-friendly range of entertainment available at the Twinkling Star Christmas Market includes not only two rides for children, such as the historic carousel, but also a children’s train offering rides through a fairy-tale Christmas village every day.

The historic carousel

The historic carousel on the Schlossplatz is a popular destination for families, kindergarten groups and school parties. A special feature is the fairy-tale motifs on the ceiling of the carousel, whose outside predominantly features pictures of historic Wiesbaden. Every single detail, every ornament and image, is lovingly painted by hand: Biebricher Schloss, Nerobergbahn, Kurhaus … as well as Frankfurt’s Eiserner Steg, Basle’s Rathaus and the Siegessäule in Berlin. All of them are places in which the two carousels are used. Each year sees countless young and old visitors flock to the carousel to take a spin, their eyes shining.
