Christmas market in Berchtesgaden

Experience the magic of the Advent season in Berchtesgaden in the south of Germany!

This festive season in Berchtesgaden is characterized by rich traditions and customs that have been passed on from many generations.

The decorated houses and market stalls in the historical town center of Berchtesgaden create a unique ambiance for the ‘Christkindlmarkt’ (Christmas Market in Bavaria).
