Christmas Market Dates
22nd November – 22nd December 2016
Welcome to the
Erfurt Christmas Market
Erfurt’s Christmas market is the largest in Thuringia and one of the loveliest in the whole of Germany.
Erfurt’s medieval old town is centred on the Domplatz (Cathedral Square) which is a perfect setting for a romantic and unique Christmas Market atmosphere.
Highlights of the Erfurt Christmas Market are: an enormous 25m high Christmas tree, decorated with hundreds of candles. A 12m high Christmas Pyramid and a nativity scene, set amidst a magical fairytale forest, with hand carved almost life-sized figurines.
The Christmas pyramid with its traditional Erzgebirge characters tells the story of those who have shaped Erfurt's history. Here, Father Christmas and his Christmas angels may whisk you off into the beautiful, old historical town, where you might well stumble across the Floral Christmas exhibition in the underground cellars of Erfurt Cathedral.
