In the heart of Würzburg’s Old Town one of Germany’s most picturesque and enchanting Christmas Markets attracts thousands of visitors every year. The Christmas market’s tradition dates back to the early 19th century. The historic market square with its Gothic Chapel of St Mary and its abundance of Baroque architecture provide a scenic backdrop for almost 120 wooden stalls. Choose from handmade holiday decorations ranging from artful glass, straw, pewter and pottery to wooden toys.

Look out for original knitwear, creative jewelry, mouth-watering delicatessen or tasty gingerbread for your loved ones. Sample delicious Franconian Christmas cookies and roasted almonds, and don’t forget to sip the traditional Glühwein, a popular hot red wine infused with spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and orange peel.

Get into the Christmas Spirit and join us for some Holiday Fun!
