A floating Christmas market in VilshofenOn three of the weekends in Advent the river Danube and the Danube promenade in Vilshofen are transformed into a Christmas market with a very special flair. A Wurm & Köck river cruiser and the Danube promenade are transformed by numerous stands selling hand-crafted items from Bavaria, Austria, Slovenia and Hungary for visitors to browse and purchase. The air is filled with the aromas of toasted almonds and mulled wine tempting visitors into cosy, heated tents for a bite to eat.
A wide and varied programme of events includes concerts of classical music, folk, jazz and even Christmas rock, Christmas readings and a nativity play. One of the highlights of the Christmas season in Vilshofen is the wooden crib scene that is the largest of its kind in the world.
Top tip: Squeeze in a trip to the Africa museum in Kloster Schweiklberg – you will be amazed at all there is to see there. Don’t miss trying a drop of the famous Schweiklberger Klostergeist.
