Relaxed shopping at Christmas time! With late night shopping downtown Bayreuth until 11 PM.

Want to have some time to go shopping with your family and friends before Christmas, enjoy an extensive supporting programme and drink some mulled wine? The Bayreuth Marketing & Tourismus GmbH invites you to do so together with the retailers of the inner city, the Rotmain-Center, the Christkindlesmarkt and the Winterdorf on 7th December 2019. Enjoy and experience Latenight-Shopping until 11pm.

In addition to the shopping experience, you can look forward to a broad supporting programme.

Guided by the motto “White Night”, the inner city of Bayreuth will be bathed in light. In addition to the romantic Christmas lights, there will be white LED balloons that enchant the city centre with light accents from the onset of dusk: some retailers decorate their facade with them and you also have the chance of winning these balloons at the wheel of fortune from our polar bear. Apart from the balloons you can also win coupons and goodies from the Bayreuth retail there.

As a child, who was not enchanted by small snow globes in which snow trickled down on a virtual winter landscape? Now this dream becomes reality – in life size. All visitors, families and children can enter the life-sized snow globe and have their picture taken with the Christ child or Santa Claus. Fun for kids and grown-ups! And at the same time a great photo reminder that you can send to friends.

At 6pm, the night-watchman calls for a tour through the city centre and tells funny, scary, exciting and historical facts about Bayreuth. Departure point is at the Schlossturm in Harmoniehof. As of now, an application for the tour is possible at Tourist-Info Bayreuth, Opernstraße 22.

Excitement rises when music comes out of the speakers around 10:45pm. What is the giant lift-truck in the middle of the city center? What do the monitors mean? Let yourself be surprised. This year, the traditional fireworks at the closing of Latenight-Shopping will be replaced by another spectacular sensation. Come, look, hear, be amazed.
