Christmas Market Dates
28th November – 22nd December 2013
Welcome to the
Konstanz Christmas Market
Annually the Konstanz historic inner city Christmas Market, in south West Germany, takes place in the heart of the old town and carries on, right on to the boats and shores of Lake Constance.
Konstanz is located on Germany’s largest lake and is in fact within viewing distance to some impressive snow covered alpine peaks.
During the pre-Christmas period more than 130 Christmas Market stalls line up the streets of Konstanz with many traders offering traditional arts & crafts, Christmas gifts and local delicacies such as the infamous Käsespätzle, a typical southern German meal, made from freshly prepared pasta and lots of cheese.
The majority of vendors come from the region and offer a very diverse selection of wares.
One particular feature of the market in Constance is the "Christmas Ship" which is moored at the quay wall in the harbour. A special atmosphere is created on board the ship as you continue to stroll through the stands.
Of course the Koblenz Christmas Market wouldn’t be complete without its daily carols, concerts and entertainment for children, including an antique carousel and pony rides.
Konstanz is uniquely located on the shores of Lake Constance and the River Rhine, this, together with its close proximity to Switzerland, Austria and Liechtenstein, makes Constance the ideal spot for a holiday destination and a stopping-off point for all manner of excursions in the surrounding region.
