The Dinkelsbühl Christmas Market from November 26 through December 21, 2015 is named after the native poet Christoph von Schmid and his famous lyrics “Ihr Kinderlein kommet.”
The market takes place in the courtyard of the Heilig Geist Spital and it is a great place to shop for presents, jewelry, and tasty treats. Inside the Spital building, you can purchase arts and crafts as well as exclusive Christmas jewelry. On the weekends, there are booths by artisans and vendors from Dinkelsbühl’s sister cities, Guérande in France and Sighisoara in Romania. A Christmas-time visit to Dinkelsbühl would not be complete without a visit to the Minster Saint George and its 60m² manger scene that spills out into the street.
