For many years now the Town Hall of Gengenbach has been an irresistible attraction during Advent, when it is converted into the world’s biggest “Advent calendar house” with its 24 windows. Come and admire it for yourself: around 100,000 visitors attend the ritual of opening of the calendar windows each year. Music, entertainment and the bright windows transform the Town Hall into a “treasure chest of fantasy”.

The daily opening of the window takes place at 6:00 pm from November 30th to December 23rd. The entertainment on the stage in front of the Town Hall starts on weekdays at 5:00 pm and at the weekend at 3:00 pm. The Advent calendar can be seen until January 6th.
