This beautifully detailed advent calendar depicts a vignette of the Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt) in Stuttgart, Germany. An intimate view of the market shows a mother choosing a toy drum from the Puppenstübchen for her child playing with a rocking horse. In the Strickstube (knitting booth) a mother out for a walk with her baby stops to talk with the proprietor and look at her yarn. The Stiftskirche bell tower and traditional buildings surrounding Schillerplatz square can been seen in the background.
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24. Children love to open a door a day as they count down to Christmas.
