Christmas Market

Against the magnificent background of historic Bayreuth, the booths of the Christmas Market offer culinary delicacies as well as handcrafted items.

In the pre-Christmas time just under 50 booths will extend from the city market place to the Römer street, presenting a variety of delicacies and gift ideas for young and old. The whole thing is framed and illuminated by a 7 km long string of lights, one of the longest in Franconia.

Bayreuth`s mayor Brigitte Merk-Erbe opens the Christmas Market each year together with the Bayreuth “Christkind” by the Herkules fountain on the market place.
On the action stage, numerous choirs, schools, clubs, musicians, theater groups, storytellers and nursery school children, provide each year a daily program for a festive Christmas mood.
Craftsmen demonstrations invite you to marvel and participate.
Of course, the “Christkind” and Santa Claus also visit “their” market several times.

Fitting to the offered delicacies, included the gingerbread bakery Schmidt the Bayreuth Christmas market in their Christmas market directory more
