When walking from the market square to the castle, or the other way around, you almost automatically come to “Twiete”. It is a small alley with a few small boutiques and is really delightful to walk through. You can admire the half-timbered buildings which give this street a special appeal. During the Christmas season, this small area is also very festively decorated. Here you can find images and read about Eutin at Christmas and also find an image of this street decorated for the holiday.
