Offers for children
The little visitors can look forward to special attractions. At the Esslingen Medieval Market & Christmas Market, families will find games and fun activities. For almost four weeks, children can test their skills. And off they go!
The fairy tale tent
The fairy tale tent at Hafenmarkt Square is a meeting place for young and old. The programme of the fairy tale tent during the Market can be found daily at the information pillars in the event area, here on our homepage or on the Facebook page The Esslingen Medieval Market & Christmas Market.
Naceur grew up in an Algerian nomadic family. There he collected his oral repertoire of exciting and thought-provoking wisdom stories, which his mother and grandmother told him in the nomad tent and which he still guards like a treasure today.
Not only fairy tales from 1001 Nights belong to his repertoire, but also travel anecdotes, sayings of wisdom, the experiences of Nasreddin Hodja, exciting and peculiar experiences of special creatures of God, quirky characters or completely normal people.
Pirolina Rabenschön, winner of the 2013 "Golden Spindle" Fairy Tale Award, tells stories from five centuries and many countries. Wondrous, sad, instructive and comical stories can be heard. For children and adults!
Experiences for children
Dwarfland is something very special. Here you can experience many exciting things, medieval games like archery, axe and knife throwing, dragon hunting, ride the smallest Ferris Wheel in the world or float through the air in the chain carousel. See what you enjoy! And in the meantime your parents will be drinking some delicious punch.
Pure nostalgia - the historic carousel
The historic carousel on the Market Square turns especially for the very young among you. Sit in the fire engine and ring the bell - that's fun.
