Fraueninsel island Christmas market

Destination Germany is famous for its beautiful Christmas markets, which every year attract visitors from around the world in search of the ultimate festive experience.

On the weekends of 30 November to 2 December and 7 to 9 December 2012 Fraueninsel island on Lake Chiemsee is transformed into one of the most remarkable Christmas markets in Germany. A crackling bonfire, twinkling lights, lovingly decorated stalls and the smell of lebkuchen wafting from the abbey kitchen make the perfect recipe for a cosy festive season.
