Christmas market St. Wendel

06. - 15. December 2024 | Christmas market

The annual Christmas and Medieval Market in St. Wendel, held during the Advent season, is a highlight in the city's event calendar, transforming the entire downtown into a world of Christmas and fairy tales..

In the charming setting of St. Wendel's downtown, spanning Mott, Bahnhofstraße, Schlossstraße, Luisenstraße, Wendalinusstraße, and Balduinstraße, over 160 lovingly decorated market stalls create a paradise for lovers of traditional handicrafts, creative crafts, and regional delicacies. A special highlight is the daily performances of the tower musicians from the balustrade of the basilica, whose sounds echo far through the city.

The Christmas pyramid in Schlossplatz, a masterpiece with intricately carved nativity figures and splendidly designed display cabinets, forms the heart of the market. The nostalgic character is perfected by attractions like the snow-covered toboggan run, a vintage carousel, and a live nativity scene. Life-sized nutcrackers, a sensory “Nativity Trail,” and exquisite handicrafts from a regional manufacturer seamlessly integrate into the overall picture.

The medieval atmosphere comes alive with mummery, magicians, jesters, and pranksters. Authentic music, fire artists, and breathtaking aerial performances transport visitors to a bygone era. The Medieval Market on the Mott offers an impressive display of long-forgotten crafts and medieval lifestyles, complemented by a rich selection of food and drinks.

The event program is diverse, including music, dance, mask plays, medieval juggling, and drama on three stages. This unparalleled experience is organized by the Tourist Info of St. Wendel, responsible not just for the market's execution but also for presenting and preserving the city's cultural heritage.

The historic city of St. Wendel itself, with its rich history and numerous attractions, significantly contributes to the market's unique atmosphere. There's the impressive Wendalinusbasilika, or Wendelsdom, a late Gothic hall church from the 14th century with the tomb of Saint Wendelin, the city's namesake. The old town's historical buildings also exude a sense of its vibrant history, especially around the Fruchtmarkt and Wendelinusbasilika, where the facades of old townhouses have been lovingly restored.

In summary, the Christmas and Medieval Market in St. Wendel is an unforgettable experience that combines tradition, culture, and festive joy in a historical setting. It's a market that attracts visitors from near and far every year, not just for its variety of attractions but also for the commitment of the city and its residents, making it a special event.

The Christmas market will take place on 10 days from Friday, 06. December to Sunday, 15. December 2024 in St. Wendel.
