Christmas market Arnstadt

| Christmas Market in Arnstadt

The Arnstadt Christmas Market takes place annually on the second Advent weekend from Thursday to Sunday. In the heart of Arnstadt's old town, this enchanting market unfolds on the historic marketplace, surrounded by distinctive buildings that create a unique atmosphere. Notably, the Town Hall and the famous Johann Sebastian Bach Church fill the square with history and charm..

Organized by the city administration, the market offers a variety of attractions for all age groups. Children delight in the Christmas toy train and the popular carousel, while adults can enjoy the daily stage program from 2 to 8 PM. Schools, kindergartens, singing and music groups set the mood for the Christmas season with their performances. Santa Claus is, of course, present, surprising children with sweets.

Beyond the festive stage program, the market enchants with its large fairy tale forest and a Christmas-themed miniature landscape. The city youth welfare's gift workshop offers creative opportunities, and the decorated huts and stands around the tall Christmas tree invite browsing. Here, visitors can find everything from mulled wine and pastries to hearty dishes, Christmas decorations, and souvenirs. Wood-fired ovens provide additional warmth. The accessibility of the marketplace is ensured by various parking options, allowing visitors to arrive comfortably.

Arnstadt itself, as one of the oldest cities in Thuringia, with its historic old town and numerous attractions such as the Johann Sebastian Bach Church, the Liebfrauenkirche, the Neideck Castle ruins, or the palace museum in the Neues Palais, is worth visiting any time of the year.

In conclusion, the Arnstadt Christmas Market is a must-visit not only for its unique atmosphere, the variety of attractions, and the historic setting. It also represents a community that keeps traditions alive and offers a warm and festive experience year after year.

The Christmas market take place annually, and therefore presumably in December 2024 in Arnstadt.
