Liquid Bread and Christmas Beer


Kulmbach is famous for its beer and it is therefore no surprise that their Christmas market features gingerbread beer and “Eisbock” beer.

The Kulmbach Adventsmarkt takes place in a historical setting - the streets of the Oberhacken. Stroll past the booths at the market and continue on to the “Burggut” building where local artisans and craftsmen show off their trades. Another area worth checking out is the “Schiessgraben” moat and its Christmas market in the old villa. If you like Christmas foods, you only have to wait until the Kulmbach Winter Village opens in late October. Kulmbach prides itself on being a “secret beer capital” and this means that you can find curiosities here, such as Christmas beer, gingerbread beer, as well as the legendary “Eisbock.”
