Live nativity scene

Nothing is so closely associated with Advent than a traditional Christmas crib. Three little lambs, two sheep, and a donkey all live for the duration of the Christmas Market in the crib in the Sporerstraße near the market hall.

The “Landesschaftzuchtverband Baden-Württemberg” – the state Sheep Breeding Association – looks after the animals with tender loving care and sells its own farm products like cheese and wool clothing in the adjacent shepherd’s stall.
