The Christmas market sold a variety of holiday merchandise that would appeal to foreigners. Brass cups, Russian dollars, and Christmas ornaments at every booth. It reminded me of a more Russian, less crowded version of the Union Square Christmas market in NYC. If that's not enough, the funnel cakey smell of fresh donuts and warm mulled wine float through the air, enticing all passersby.
We tested out the ice-skating rink as well. The tickets were free and the ice-skates only cot 5 dollars to rent, which was nice. The process of getting the ice-skates only involved passport checking and line-waiting, all fairly standard.
