When the town centre of Weimar is lit up by fairy lights every evening, the aromas of roasted almonds and fresh Stollen cake waft through the streets, and the strains of carols can be heard, the Christmas Market has clearly opened again! Christmas in Weimar also means: tradition and stories. Weimar Tourist Information offers Journeys to Weimar, tickets for Christmas concerts and much more.
