As Christmas approaches, Bamberg becomes a wintry town full of romance.Christmas markets, the music of advent and the Route of Nativity Scenes are just some of the elements that fill the World Heritage City with a special kind of magic. Bamberg's Old Town is a jewel that shines especially bright in the Christmas season. This can be most strongly felt at the magical Advent and Christmas markets that sell all kinds of this and that, beautiful sundries, traditional items and handcrafted art objects, mouth-watering snacks and of course the spiced mulled wine served hot and steaming.
With the traditional main Christmas Market on the central Maxplatz square and two special crafts markets, all staged within the old town, the season of goodwill is both a rich and exciting experience. Church music concerts, street musicians, and choir singing resound all around, creating special and unforgettable festive moments.
