Christmas market Bremen

25 Nov. - 23 Dec. 2024 | Christmas market

The Christmas market (Schlachte-Zauber) in Bremen is an annual highlight that opens its gates during the atmospheric Advent season until December 23rd. As a historic, winterly, and maritime market, it captivates visitors from around the world. The Weser promenade Schlachte, historically a hub for trading goods and named after the riverbank fortifications derived from 'slagte', meaning the driving in of shore piles held by beams and wickerwork, is predestined for this event..

The organizer, Großmarkt Bremen GmbH, brings additional expertise in managing such large events, ensuring smooth proceedings. The setting is dominated by defensive towers along the Weser, lending a medieval atmosphere to the market. With nightfall, countless torches, lanterns, and warming fires are lit.

Along the Weser promenade, numerous wooden huts line the way. Each is unique, offering a variety of goods – from handicrafts to culinary delights. The specialty of the Schlachte Magic is the historical pirate village, where medieval craftsmanship comes to life. More than two dozen trades transform this historical part of the Schlachte Magic into a medieval spectacle.

Visitors can look forward to traditional delicacies like Kibberlinge, wild boar and deer sausages, flame-grilled salmon, and kale. The culinary offerings are complemented by handmade products such as jewelry, soaps, pastries, lamps, hats, knitwear, warming pillows, ceramics, and spices, available in the festively decorated huts.

The market's accessibility is excellent due to its central location on the Weser promenade, with public transport and ample parking for visitors. Additionally, Bremen's rich history invites exploration beyond the market itself.

In conclusion, the Christmas market (Schlachte-Zauber) is not just a market, but a total experience – a journey through time that impresses with its authenticity, diverse offerings, and welcoming atmosphere. It's the combination of historical ambiance, craft demonstrations, and festive joy that makes the Schlachte Magic so unique and worth visiting.

The Christmas market will take place on 29 days from Monday, 25. November to Monday, 23. December 2024 in Bremen.
