Christmas Markets

Traditional customs are alive and well at the Christmas market in the old quarter of Annaberg-Buchholz, normally amid plenty of snow. It opens on 26 November at 5pm, when a ceremonial push sets the Christmas pyramid in motion. The carousel of festive figures is a joy to behold. This Christmas market is one of the prettiest in the Erzgebirge, with hand-carved yuletide gifts at traditional stalls. The aroma of festive treats made to family recipes fills the air. Children have a Christmas wonderland of their own to discover in the elves' bakery and craft room, and in Santa's workshop. Other attractions include the miners' Nativity scene and the ever-popular programme of music. The highpoint of this traditional Christmas market begins at 1.30pm on 19 December 2021 when 1,000 people in traditional costumes set off on the grand miners' parade.
