Leipzig Christmas Markets

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this event has now unfortunately been cancelled. Please check the official event page for further details.

One of the oldest and perhaps most romantic Christmas markets in Germany is situated right in the heart of Leipzig’s old town. The Leipzig Christmas market features more than 250 traditional and festively decorated stands, where vendors offer everything from regional culinary delights to handmade gifts, ensuring it is an ever-popular winter wonderland.

Christmas market in the middle of a historic town 

Trombone players’ concerts on the main market square and visits from Santa Claus himself help spread the Christmas cheer far and wide in Leipzig in the run-up to the national holiday. The large Christmas tree, which towers over the entire Christmas market, draws in crowds, together with the 100-year-old historic carousel.

Over by St. Nicholas Church Square, the Christmas market boasts plenty of handmade decorations from the Ore Mountains and unconventional ceramics. The main feature, however, is the famous Ore Mountain pyramid, which invites visitors to have a round of Feuerzangenbowle, classic German fire punch.

Known for its focus on old, traditional arts and crafts, this market offers plenty of opportunity for visitors to watch glassblowers, metalsmiths and artisans create their beautiful wares.
