Against the magnificent background of historic Bayreuth, the booths of the Christmas Market offer culinary delicacies as well as handcrafted items.
Enjoy the pre-Christmas season
The market in Bayreuth has a long tradition and is eagerly awaited by all Bayreuthers every year. There is hardly a better place in Bayreuth or its surroundings to get in the mood for the Feast of Love than between all the small stalls on the Christmas market.
Visitors can hardly make up their mind with a wide selection of Christmas delicacies. The scent of gingerbread, children’s punch and roasted almonds doesn’t make the decision any easier. Adults are also catered for: mulled wine or other high-percent treats make you get even closer and forget the cold winter weather.
If you are still looking for a suitable Christmas present for your loved ones, you will also find it at the Bayreuth Christmas Market. Whether Christmas decorations or special gift ideas made of wood, with an offer of 40 stands you can find something for every taste.
The Christ Child personally
This year, the Bayreuth Christmas Market takes place from 21 November to 23 December 2022. On 21 November 2022, the Bayreuth Christkind will officially open the Christkindlesmarkt between the hospital church and the old castle. Throughout the whole time of the Christmas Market, the market is visited again and again by Christkind. Small surprises are handed out to the young visitors to the market and also stories are read out again and again.
The abundantly decorated Christmas trees of all retailers on the Bayreuth Market Square and its side streets provide a particularly festive atmosphere. In addition, the longest string of lights in Frankens, with a length of around 7 km, creates a romantic atmosphere throughout the city centre.
For those who do not want to go home after the Christmas Market, the Bayreuth Winterdorf is the perfect place. Directly behind the Christmas market, at the tax office of Bayreuth, you will find the rustic huts and mulled wine stalls. Those who want can spend the evening here with one or another mulled wine and music with their friends or family. Of course, the physical well-being is also well taken care of here. Enjoy the Bayreuth cordiality with nice conversations in a convivial atmosphere and let a successful stay end by tasting many different varieties of mulled wine.
By the way, the Bayreuth Winter Village with its unique atmosphere opens its doors in October on the forecourt of the Old Castle in the city centre: by the crackling fireplace you can enjoy delicious delicacies until 31 December and try numerous variations of mulled wine by candlelight.
