Kurort Seiffen

See the largest nutcracker in Germany
Seiffen, the cradle of tradition and handicrafts in the Erzgebirge mountains, really comes to life during the festive season. At the beautifully illuminated Christmas market you can look over the shoulders of the local craftsmen and see new items taking shape before your eyes. Treat your taste buds to Erzgebirge specialities in Germany’s most famous toymaking village. The whole of Seiffen is decked out like a fairytale and every day offers a new experience: the traditional miners’ parades (featuring miners’ guilds and a traditional children’s costume troupe), the torchlit procession on the mining trails, the miners’ Christmas in the visitor centre and Advent events in the church and toy museum.
