Rothenburg’s Historical Christmas Market

Rothenburg's Christmas Market

More Christmas than Market, November 29 to December 23, 2019

Where? Between the Marktplatz, Grüner Markt, and Kirchplatz

What? Every year Medieval Rothenburg transforms into a wintertime fairy tale. The festive Advent season has been accompanied by a wonderful Christmas market since the fifteenth century. The market looks back on over 500 years of tradition and has changed little from its historical origins over this time.

Fun fact: The Reiterle’s origins extend back into prehistory. In the past he was a feared figure, but today both young and old look forward to his appearance.

Be sure not to miss: The market’s opening by the Reiterle and the daily concerts on the stage are best enjoyed with a mulled white wine and a delicious treat from the food stands.
