In 2018, in a survey conducted by the online portal testberichte.de, the Christmas market at Fürth Freiheit was voted the most popular in Bavaria. The reason why is easily explained.

In contrast to the world-famous Christmas market in nearby Nuremberg, in Fürth you can easily stroll around the market without having to contend with crowds of visitors. The festive food leaves nothing to be desired. From the traditional mulled wine and a bratwurst roll to eggnog punch and flame-grilled salmon - at Fürth Christmas Market there is something to suit every taste, from whether sweet to or savoury.

More than 40 booths display an enticing array of gift articles, Christmas tree decorations and Christmas fare, while children can look forward to the merry-go-round and the little train that runs through a small Christmas forest.

Opening hours: November 30th - December 23rd, daily 10:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m
Admission is free.​​​​​

With craftsmen, jugglers, fire blowers and stilt walkers, the lovingly decorated market with its historical booths next to the Freiheit market has been attracting visitors since 2010. Candlemakers, carpenters, dress makers, bone carvers and blacksmiths demonstrate their skills.

Visitors can warm themselves at the many open fires with cups of steaming hot mead or soak in a wooden mediaeval bath tub. Traditional tastes of the past can also be savoured in the form of soups, stews and tarte flambée. 

Exciting acts and musicians will once again be performing on the Medieval Market stage. There is a separate daily program for children. So you will experience music, jugglery, artistry and fire as walkacts and mini-shows at the market.

Opening hours: November 30th - December 23rd, daily 10:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m
Admission is free.

First held more than 40 years ago, the festive spirit abounds for ten days at the traditional Old Town Christmas Market on the idyllic Waagplatz.

Aside from a varied musical programme, visitors can look forward to an array of traditional arts and crafts made by professional and hobby artists. Live demonstrations, including a blacksmith and glass-blower at work, can be watched. Tin toys, ceramics, porcelain, jewellery, dolls and Christmas decorations such as candles, lanterns and wooden ornaments make beautiful little Christmas presents.

Magicians and puppet theatres captivate the market’s youngest visitors. 

The Old Town Christmas Market is creative, original, relaxed and, above all, not so as commercialised as many other markets.

Opening hours: December 8th - 17th, Mon - Fri: 4 p.m. - 8 p.m., Sat + Sun: 2 p.m. - 8 p.m
Admission is free.
