Neustadt inspired Lincoln's Christmas Market

Help

Lincoln's Christmas Market started in 1982 after a group of councillors were inspired by a visit to the city's twin-town of Neustadt an der Weinstrasse in Germany.

More than 25 years on, Lincoln's market has grown in to one of the biggest in the UK, with more than 150,000 visitors and 250 stalls.

Neustadt's deputy mayor, Georg Kirst, said his town had been the inspiration for Lincoln's market.
