Weimar Onion Market
The humble onion is the star of the Onion Market held in Weimar every October. These are no ordinary onions lumped together in crates or sacks; these are onions plaited together in the traditional way and decorated with dried flowers of yellow, white or lilac. They come in all sizes too – from tiny ones to a whopping big one.
A long tradition
It was first recorded in 1653 as a “market for beasts and onions" on what is today the Frauenplan, mostly held on a Sunday around 10 October...
A variety of artists will also be performing – there will be more than 100 performances on the stages within the city. The online program will be published in September.
Parking and more
Parking during Onion Market: beside parking garages in the city centre there will be special designated parking areas with Park&Ride facilities.
