Christmas market in Altenburg

Immerse yourself in the festive spirit in Altenburg, where the Christmas market is held on the main Market Square, a grand square lined by baroque town houses, the magnificent Renaissance town hall and the Church of the Brethren, which dominates the scene. Two must-try specialities are Altenburg goat's cheese and huckelkuchen cake. Other highlights are concerts in churches, the castle and the theatre, guided torchlight tours and night-time tower ascents, and a Christmas tent with an oven for you to bake your own yuletide goodies.
