Golden Pforzheim Christmas Market Pforzheim

| Christmas market on the market square in Goldstadt

The Golden Pforzheim Christmas Market, an annual highlight during the pre-Christmas season, welcomes visitors from near and far to enjoy the festive atmosphere from the last week of November until just before Christmas. Established in 1972 and bearing its resplendent name since 2006, the market traditionally takes place in the marketplace of the "Gold City," an area renowned for its historical and cultural significance, providing the perfect backdrop..

Pforzheim, known as the "City of Gold," offers a unique ambiance for this market with its rich history in jewelry and watchmaking. Notably, the historic buildings lining the marketplace add a picturesque and almost fairytale-like atmosphere to the Christmas market.

The market stalls, stretching across the entire marketplace, offer a variety of attractions and goods. From traditional handicrafts to festive decorations, there's something special for every visitor. A highlight is the culinary offerings: regional delicacies and Christmas pastries, accompanied by warming drinks like mulled wine and hot apple juice, enchant the senses.

What makes the Golden Pforzheim Christmas Market so special is the combination of traditional flair, the unique atmosphere of the Gold City, and the diverse offerings that go far beyond the usual. Whether it's the handmade jewelry that recalls the city's golden past, or the festive lighting that transforms the marketplace into a sparkling winter wonderland, this market is a must-visit for every Christmas enthusiast.

With its unique blend of tradition, culture, and festive enjoyment, it offers an unforgettable experience for both young and old.

The Golden Pforzheim Christmas Market takes place annually, and therefore for the fifty-second time previsibly in December 2024 in Pforzheim.
