Shining Advent


Bayreuth shines especially bright during the Advent season: The Christkindlesmarkt and the old town are illuminated by a 7 km long string of Christmas lights.

A leisurely stroll through the market is a special treat, as is a visit to the “Fair Trade Advent Bazaar” at the castle tower. If the wait for the start of the Christkindlesmarkt is too long for you, you can get an early fix at the Winter Village in front of the Old Castle. Enjoy daily hot, mulled wine variations, cozy fireplaces, and five rustic booths selling regional delicacies, as well as parties every night with variable themes.
