Erfurt's Christmas Market
November 26 - December 22, 2019
Erfurt's Christmas Market is one of the loveliest in the whole of Germany and is the largest in Thuringia.
Erfurt’s medieval old town centred on Domplatz (Cathedral Square) is the perfect setting for the specially atmospheric time of Advent.
You will find traditionally crafts and Thuringian specialities and also an enormous Christmas tree decorated with candles, a crib scene and hand-carved, almost life-size figures. There are also plenty of showman-like traders.
A varied events programme is on offer especially on the Advent weekends.
