Christmas from A to Z

Christmas market in Zwickau

Zwickau, in the foothills of the Erzgebirge mountains, is home to one of Saxony's most popular Christmas markets.Every year, the beautiful old quarter is bathed in the glow of a giant Christmas tree and a traditional Christmas pyramid. Surrounded by delightful old gabled houses, the Christmas market is officially opened by Father Christmas and his entourage, and with the traditional blowing of the pyramid. The absolute highlight is the miners' bands parade, a time-honoured custom involving around 300 miners, marching bands and traditional costumes. This is typical for the Erzgebirge region and is not practised anywhere else in Germany. The grand finale at 2.45pm is the miners' concert in the cathedral square in front of the priests' houses.
