Christmas Markets in Germany

First mentioned in 1384, the Christmas market in Bautzen is probably the oldest in Germany. In the 17th century followed the traditional Christmas markets, which were already very similar to today's markets.

Today there are about 2500 Christmas markets during November/Dezember in Germany.

Of course these events are also a big economic factor.

The Christmas tradition in the German-speaking world is known worldwide, and there are Christmas markets in many countries on the German model.

Christkindlesmarkt is the most popular Christmas market that is held annually in Nuremberg, Germany. It takes place during Advent in the Hauptmarkt, the central square in Nuremberg’s old town, and in adjoining squares and streets. 2019 it starts at the 29th of November.
