Christmas Markets

For a quintessential Christmas market in a pretty old quarter, look no further than Kaufbeuren. On the square outside St. Martin's Church you can discover some wonderful hand-crafted items, find lovely gift ideas and enjoy a truly festive atmosphere. As you stroll around taking it all in, delicious seasonal treats beckon from the displays, while Allgäu choirs and ensembles fill the air with music as they perform on the small stage. Younger visitors will simply adore the Nativity scene which features real animals. But those are by no means all the attractions at Kaufbeuren's Christmas market, known as 'Weihnachtszauber' (Christmas magic): it also boasts the Kaufbeuren Christmas Trail, the 'Christmas customs' exhibition, the world's largest Advent wreath at the Neptune fountain and the enchanted gingerbread house in the pedestrian area.
