The history of Leipzig’s Christmas market goes all the way back to 1767. It is one of the largest and most beautiful in Germany, with around 250 stalls on the city’s historical market square. Attractions include the fairytale forest, the Old Leipzig medieval market and the world’s largest free-standing Advent calendar. Watch the grand miners’ parade, an old-established tradition in the Erzgebirge region, and enjoy the delightful trumpeters, concerts by the famous St. Thomas’s choir and performances of Bach’s Christmas oratorios in the city’s churches.
