Traditionally, the market opens from the end of November until January, usually around Epiphany, turning Speyer into a glittering winter wonderland..

The Speyer Christmas and New Year's Market is set along the renowned Maximilian Street, a picturesque setting amplified by its proximity to the impressive Imperial Cathedral. This location bestows a unique atmosphere upon the market, where the past and festive present seamlessly merge.

The market is hosted by the city of Speyer itself, whose expertise extends well beyond mere organization. As a cultural and historical focal point of the region, the city contributes its extensive knowledge and experience to create an unforgettable event.

Regarding Speyer itself, it is one of Germany's oldest cities, rich in historical sites, including the famous Imperial Cathedral. The Cathedral is the city's landmark and Speyer's first UNESCO World Heritage site. It is recognized as the largest preserved Romanesque church in Europe. Also notable is the Altpörtel, Speyer's westernmost city gate and a part of the medieval fortifications, marking the end of the main commercial street opposite the Cathedral.
