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.
