Christmas market Wernigerode

22 Nov. - 22 Dec. 2024 | Christmas market

The Wernigerode Christmas Market, an annual pre-Christmas tradition, transforms the picturesque city center and the market square into a winter wonderland, enchanting its visitors with a unique atmosphere. Organized by the city administration, which is responsible not only for its coordination but also for ensuring the smooth operation of the market with its variety of stalls and attractions, the festival takes place in the heart of the old town..

The historical backdrop, featuring the impressive Sylvestri Church and timber-framed buildings, provides the perfect setting for the festive booths, which stretch from the pedestrian zone to the city's central squares. Visitors can expect an array of specialties: handicrafts made using traditional methods, culinary delights ranging from savory to sweet, and live music enhancing the Christmas mood.

What makes the Wernigerode Christmas Market particularly special includes the Nativity Trail, which reinterprets the Christmas story in a new light, and the luminous display that wraps the Sylvestri Church and Nicolai Square in festive attire. For lovers of historic trains, the Santa Claus steam train ride is a true highlight, as is the Advent Express, which invites guests on a special journey to Nordhausen.

The numerous stalls offer traditional treats such as sausages, gingerbread, and marzipan, accompanied by a variety of mulled wine options, from classic to novel. The market is easily accessible on foot and by public transportation, facilitating the journey for visitors from the region and beyond. A visit is worthwhile not only for the unique gift ideas and culinary delights but also to become part of this unique pre-Christmas ambiance.

The Christmas market will take place on 31 days from Friday, 22. November to Sunday, 22. December 2024 in Wernigerode.
