Onion Festival / Zwiebelmarkt

How to get to the Onion Market

The best way to get to Weimar's Onion Fair (if you're not staying overnight) is by train: There are many additional trains going from Erfurt or Jena to Weimar on this weekend. Every 30 minutes trains leave from Erfurt or Jena in direction Weimar, from 10am to 7pm. Later the night the Deutsche Bahn offers hourly connections. Visitors coming from Apolda also use the regularly trains. Late at night trains leave to Apolda, Gera, Erfurt or Kranichfeld.
