A Christmas candle of giant proportions
This enchanting Christmas market is lit up, both metaphorically and literally, by the world's largest candle in the form of the illuminated castle keep. Rising high above the town, it is even crowned with a giant light for the flame. Take a lift to the top and admire the scene. The views are even better when music and choirs can be heard in the streets below. Market stalls offer mouth-watering specialities and crafts. Guided tours of the town begin at 4pm on Saturdays in Vorderburg Castle courtyard. No booking required.
