Würzburg Christmas Market

1st December 2017 - 23rd December 2017

In the heart of Würzburg's old town, one of Germany's most picturesque and enchanting Christmas markets is held creating a tradition that dates back to the early 19th century. Enjoy a stroll through more than 100 wooden stalls, sampling delicious Christmas cookies and roasted almonds while sipping the traditional Gluhwein. Wooden toys, jewellery, fine teas and spices, traditional Christmas decorations, scented candles, pottery, embroideries, and hand-knitted gifts ensure that no-one goes home empty handed. You will find the Würzburg Christmas Markets have a long history stretching back over many generations. They are decorated in beautiful soft lighting, giving the city a golden glow and setting the scene for the perfect festive getaway.

Würzburg, on the banks of the River Main, is a charming city renowned for its art and architectural heritage. The Residence Castle, a baroque masterpiece, has been listed a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982.

The Würzburg Christmas Market is set against the stunning backdrop of beautiful baroque architecture and the gothic St. Mary's Chapel; the city's market square is the perfect setting for this festive scene.

Situated between Frankfurt and Nuremberg, and with good transport links to both cities, Würzburg is a destination for many holidaymakers on Nuremberg city breaks.
