Children check out the images behind the wooden doors of the giant advent calendar. The wood carvings sitting on top are miniature elements of the full-size market: the Christmas tree, the Kinderchalet (children’s chalet) and the giant Weihnachtspyramide (Christmas pyramid).

In spite of the cancellation of the Marché de Noël allemand de Québec (Quebec City German Christmas Market) this year, the team behind the event has found a unique way to bring the spirit of a German Christmas back to the Old City.
