Getting a head start
German children who write to Santa Claus use his home address in Himmelpfort, a small town north of Berlin. His (most probably empty) house can be visited all year. There, children can get an early start on preparing their wish list. After all, it might be a smart move to be one of the first to get in touch with Santa: Over 270,000 letters are sent to his Himmelpfort address every year.
