Leipzig Christmas Market
Leipzig Christmas markets are ideal for family holidays and romantic breaks to the German Christmas markets.

The beautiful city of Leipzig hosts one of Germany's largest and oldest Christmas markets. The Leipzig Christmas Markets date all the way back to 1458 and remain an iconic symbol of the city's heritage. Over 250 twinkling stalls add to the magnificent ambience in Leipzig's historic centre, which combines rich heritage and cultural cuisine with a festive light display which captivates visitors from all over the world.

The Christmas market is not only one of the oldest but also one of the largest Christmas markets in Germany. The Marktplatz is the centre of attention with entertainment provided on the market square stage and a Saxon spruce Christmas tree over 20m high. The Ferris wheel at Augustusplatz offers idyllic seasonal views and the Fairy Tale Forest is a place where children can meet Santa Claus for a chat. The historical Christmas Market of ancient Leipzig highlights local arts and crafts.

The world famous St. Thomas choir makes regular appearances at the Leipzig Christmas Market, leaving the audience enchanted with every performance. Leipzig offers a multitude of festive delights; marvel at the world's largest free-standing Advent calendar, indulge in numerous culinary delights or explore the city's traditional medieval market.

Music enthusiasts will love the performances of J.S. Bach's Christmas oratorios in Leipzig's churches.
