The Baden-Baden municipal utility invites all children and their parents to the traditional winter festival at the Merkur on Saturday, December 10, from 12 to 4 pm. As always, St. Nicholas will also drop by. He will visit the little guests at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. and will have a small gift for each child.
The storyteller Manuela Romberg reads Christmas stories and entertains the big and small guests as a reindeer. New this year is a Santa Claus craft corner for children. There will also be a small Christmas market at the mountain station. Lebenshilfe Baden-Baden/Bühl will spoil guests with waffles, while the team at the "Merkurstüble" will have bratwursts, mulled wine, punch and soft drinks available. The Huck family from the Sinzheim Countrywomen's Association will be selling homemade goods from the region.
The wind ensemble of the Musikverein Baden-Oos will provide musical entertainment with Christmas music. If the weather is nice, the paragliding club Baden e.V. will even organize a Santa Claus flight. Advance registration is not required. Normal fares apply for the ride on the mountain railroad. Masks are still compulsory in the Merkurbergbahn. It is requested to use public transport, as only a limited number of parking spaces are available.
