Weimarer Weihnacht

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.

A festive Christmas tree

Our Christmas tree

Weimar may be famous for many things – but hardly anyone knows that the first public Christmas tree was erected in Weimar.

O, du fröhliche

You'll find the popular German carol "O, du fröhliche" being sung particularly frequently in Weimar during the Christmas season.

Don’t miss Weimar’s Advent Calendar – it’s the Gothic town hall on the market square with its windows specially decorated.
