Travellers visiting south-west Germany over the coming weeks can enjoy the growing sense of excitement and festive cheer as seasonal markets open throughout the region.

The tourism agency representing Baden-Wurttemberg highlighted a range of festive events that will be getting underway soon, which range from the 'big and bustling' to the 'small and intimate'.

In Bad Wimpfen, visitors can explore one of Germany's oldest Christmas markets and join walking tours led by night watchmen and town guides in period costume.

Another destination worth visiting is Ludwigsburg, near Stuttgart, which hosts a Baroque fair featuring more than 170 stalls, while Gengenbach offers the impressive sight of a giant advent calendar that uses the 24 windows of the 18th-century town hall.

The majority of markets in the region open in the last week of November and run until Christmas Eve. Click here for a complete list of the Christmas Markets.
