Christmas markets in Regensburg
During advent, the streets and squares in Regensburg are all filled with sparkling Christmas lights and a very special atmosphere embraces the UNESCO World Heritage city. Our visitors can enjoy this romantic time with our four different Christmas markets (November 23rd to December 23rd, 2016):
There is Regensburg’s traditional CHRISTMAS MARKET , which an independent jury has described as one of the loveliest in the German-speaking countries (daily 10 AM – 8 PM, 10 AM – 9 PM on Thu, Fri, Sat). From there, it is only a short walk to LUCREZIAMARKT, where artists and craftsmen set up stalls laden with wonderful handmade wares (daily 11 AM – 8 PM).
In the courtyard of Thurn & Taxis Palace there is the ROMANTIC CHRISTMAS MARKET, offering all the bustling atmosphere of a market, and a varied programme of cultural events like daily entertainment programmes with theme nights (Sun to Wed 12 noon – 10 PM,Thur to Sat 12 noon – 11 PM).
Then, there is the ADVENT MARKET in the Spitalgarten on the other side of the Danube, which is a beautiful beer garden in summer and now offers a different Christmas motto each weekend. On each of these markets the visitor can enjoy hot mulled wine and all sorts of traditional foods, from candied almonds and gingerbread to Bratwurst (grilled sausage). All markets start on Thursday before the first weekend of advent and close on 23rd of December.
And every year again during advent there are BOAT TRIPS along the Danube Valley from Regensburg through the charming winter landscape.
