Bamberg Christmas Market 2023

While away and feel the Christmas spirit at this one-of-a-kind event

Come holiday season, the Maximiliansplatz marketplace turns into a Christmas celebration venue. Whether you’re planning to spend this season alone or have your little ones in tow, pay attention to Bamberg Christmas Market, as this event will stay etched in your memory!

As mentioned, the market is held at Maximiliansplatz in the pedestrian Old Town of Bamberg. The venue is throbbing with Christmas spirit and decorations, guaranteeing a wonderful time even for jaded visitors. This celebration is perfect for you if you have a soft spot for delectable food, as stallholders offer everything from traditional German sausages and mulled wine to roasted almonds and pastries. Once you’ve eaten your fill, swing by cozy gift shops for souvenirs and toys for your kids. After all this fun, we suggest heading the end of market lanes for the nativity scene, depicting magical-themed demonstrations.

Market stalls are open from 9:30 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Saturday and 11:00 am to 8:00 pm on Sundays. No admission fee is required, so just book your housing in advance and visit the event’s official website for more information. Have fun!
