Weimar Onion Market 2013

The onion will take centre stage in Weimar between 11 and 13 October, be it in cakes, in soup, in the famous plait or as part of a floral arrangement. The Zwiebelmarkt is the biggest volksfest in Thuringia and is being celebrated for the 360th time in 2013. In the town of German Classicism, you can look forward to 600 or so stands, a varied programme of entertainment on five large stages and the crowning of the Onion Market Queen.

For a number of years now the Onion Market has also featured a city run, in which more than 2,000 people gather on the start line ready to tackle the 10km route, the half marathon or the kids' run.
