Detailed Overview

Traditionally hosted on the church square to allow worshippers to peruse after their church service, the Christmas Market showcased the finest local crafts, toys, sweets, and festive gifts. Early offerings included simple wooden carts, rag dolls, and, later on, hobby horses and rocking horses. Until the 1870s and 1880s, parents often acquired all their children’s toys at these markets. Beyond shopping, Christmas Markets were social hubs where people gathered to catch up, exchange news, and gossip. This social tradition endures today, making the markets the go-to meeting place during Advent. In 2018 and still now, people convene over cups of Glühwein to chat, sample diverse Christmas treats, and bask in the winter’s festive ambiance. The heart of these markets lies not only in traditional crafts stalls but also in Glühwein and refreshment stalls. Today, Christmas Markets blend crafts, foods, drinks, and various seasonal attractions into a vibrant and lively celebration.
