Seiffen, in the heart of the Erzgebirge mountains, is the cradle of local traditions and handicrafts. Watch craftsmen working as they did 100 years ago at the Christmas market and in the toy village and discover novelties of the folk art. The Erzgebirge edible delicacies are a real delight. During the traditional mountain parades and the procession of light on Bergmann paths, the past of the mines are brought back to life and light is returned to the old miners’ paths. If you’re looking for a bit of peace and quiet after the excitement, drop into the Bergkirche on Sundays at 2.30pm for “Seiffener Adventsmusik”. A real treat for children is the KinderChristmas market with Father Christmas. There’s boundless fun to be had with model making, games, the Christmas circus, puppet doctor, Christmas traditions from the Czech Republic, culinary delights and much more. Experience Advent and the Erzgebirge traditions differently every day in Seiffen.
