Chemnitz Christmas Market
from 25th November til 23rd December 2022
In November of each year, the Christmas season is heralded in Chemnitz with the erection of the big tree on the market square. Traditionally, this moment is duly celebrated with the first mulled wine of the year. The Christmas market traditionally kicks off on the day before the first Advent with over 1,000 participants from 30 mining fraternities and miners' guilds in one of the largest mining parades in the Ore Mountains. Every year, the 200 festively decorated stalls, stands and fairground rides between Innerer Klosterstraße, Marktplatz, Düsseldorfer Platz and Rosenhof are illuminated in a Christmassy light. The entire city centre shines out of itself thanks to thousands of lights and children wait spellbound in front of the stage for Father Christmas. On the Inner Klosterstraße, the Klosterweihnacht with its medieval sounds and stalls has found its permanent place in the hearts of visitors.
