Erfurt Christmas Market

Erfurt's Christmas market, set in front of the majestic setting of the cathedral St. Marien and Severi Church, is one of the most beautiful markets in Germany and the largest one in Thuringia. The huge pyramid, nativity scene and Advent wreath as well as the Christmas tree are popular photo motives. In the entire city centre are huts and small markets in the courtyards of restaurants with all kinds of delicacies - so keep your eyes open to discover them all!

Tip: At egapark you can extend the Christmas feeling until January. The park is illuminated in artistic and colourful lights during the Winter Glow.

Weimar Christmas Market

Located in the heart of the historic old town, the traders invite you to their lovely decorated stalls and let you drift from the market place along Schillerstra├če to Theaterplatz. The ice-skating rink on Theatre Square is a popular meeting place. You can skate circles under the eyes of Goethe and Schiller. Insider tips are the Bauhaus Christmas Market or the market at the Bee Museum.

We believe that fairytales are an essential part of the Advent season. For all those who feel the same way, the Fairytale Market Gera is worth a visit. On the market square you will meet Snow White and

the 7 Dwarfs or Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. The protagonists of the Grimm fairytales are brought to life with life-sized, handmade figures. In addition, there will be all kinds of Christmas market hustle and bustle.
