"Join in and be filled with wonder and Christmas cheer" is the motto of Friedberg’s annual and very romantic Advent market which is held annually in the streets and squares around St. Jacob’s church and in the adjacent Archivhof. A true highlight in the town’s cultural calendar, this market full of flair offers a wide range of select, top-quality, hand-crafted gifts. But that’s not all – enjoy an array of delicious delights from local Wittelsbacher Land producers.
The Friedberg Advent market draws visitors from all over Bavaria who love strolling through this "Atmospheric Christmas market" and enjoy the fabulous culture on offer that includes art, music and song. One of the Advent highlights is the long night of the arts in Friedberg, the "Night of the Stars" on Friday 7th December with an extensive programme of events in the town hall, the Wittelsbach castle and other venues across town. Enjoy a stroll through the art galleries showcasing a range of exhibitions followed by a scintillating firework display.
Organised by a local residents’ association known as the Bürger für Friedberg headed up by Anita and Gerd Horseling together with Martha and Franz Reißner, the Friedberg Advent festival creates a platform each year for visitors to really get away from it all and relax in line with Friedberg’s motto "Friedberg gives you wings".
