The Christmas market in the heart of the old quarter opens on 28 November at 5pm, when a ceremonial push sets the Christmas pyramid in motion. The festive figures even come down from the carousel to introduce themselves. Here the Erzgebirge's woodcarving traditions come to the fore. Tours by night and Christmas surprises, special Christmas exhibitions, the Bergmann nativity scene and the great Bergmann parade on 21.12 are as traditional as they are eventful.
