Hands-on booths for creative kids
Christmas Bake House
In the Christmas Bake House, children can bake their own lebkuchen: rolling out the dough, cutting out their own gingerbread figures and decorating them. The dough is then popped in the oven and in a few minutes the delicious treats are ready to take home. Children love to use their imagination when decorating gingerbread with nuts or sugar pearls.
In the candle making booth of the Mallmann Company, children have the opportunity to dye candles in a whole range of colors: there’s no limit to their imagination. In fact, experience shows that orange is a favorite! Even more difficult is choosing the right shape: long and thin or thick and round or one from every type? After all, you need a candle for each Sunday in Advent and they make wonderful gifts. Another option is a wax print of a child’s hand, which is a favorite present for grandparents.
In the glass workshop, little visitors can choose from high-quality key-chains with Swarowski crystals or various drinking glasses and engrave them with their own motive, such as a name or holiday greeting.
Teddy Bear's Crafts and Cards
Children can make personalized Christmas cards using their own colorful fingerprints – creating an amazing array of animals and other figures.
They can also make Christmas presents using brushes and corks.
Children's Sand Pictures
In this hands-on booth, children can create pictures using various colors of sand. They can either follow patterns or let their imagination take wing. This form of art will deepen their understanding of color, help with fine motor skills and is a sensatory stimulus.
Sponsored by the DB Museum, at the Museums-Post Office children can write a Christmas wish list for the Christkind or send a letter to loved ones. Cut-out sheets and a free mini-book are available for every child. Two mail boxes assure that the letters reach their destination. A visit to the post office and “mailing” a Christmas wish list to the Christkind is free of charge. In the past, more than 100 wish lists, letters and pictures were sent to the Christkind each day. Children who wish to send a letter to friends or family pay only for a stamp.
The Nicolas House
Nicolas sits in his festively-decorated house and waits for children to visit him. There’s no need to be afraid: This jolly man has a lot of patience with children and answers all their questions gladly. In addition, Nicolas offers a very special service: Parents or grandparents can arrange an appointment, create a personally prepared package, deliver it to the Nicolas House and see their children or grandchildren receive the package from Nicolas himself. This experience creates memories that last a lifetime.
For a fee, you can also have a photo taken of your child with Nicolas.
