Berchtesgaden Christmas Market
Experience the magic of the Advent season!
This festive season in Berchtesgaden is characterized by rich traditions and customs that have been passed on from many generations. At the Christmas Market stalls, you can find original Berchtesgaden Christmas tree decorations that have been crafted according to the folk art traditions that have existed in the region for centuries. The decorated houses and market stalls in the historical town center of Berchtesgaden create a unique ambiance for the 'Christkindlmarkt' (Christmas Market). Framed by the royal castle, the local brass ensemble performs and fills the air with seasonal music that makes visitors in the mood for Christmas. A live nativity scene, horse-drawn carriage rides, local wood crafts and Christmas carol singers create an atmosphere that will fill you with joy and peace.
