The historical Christmas market at Wartburg castle has been taking its visitors back to a world of historical trade and time-honoured almost forgotten crafts for many years now where candlemakers, glassblowers, costume designers, lantern makers, soap boilers, stone masons, herb women, tinsmiths and travelling merchants offer their goods for sale, delicious Thuringia treats refresh the palate, musicians and jesters provide amusing entertainment and fun in the courtyards and ballroom, and all in the unique setting of the famous Wartburg Castle in Eisenach, Thuringia, which has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
Ancient walls, warm candlelight – even those who aren't fans of Advent find it hard to tear themselves away from such a romantic Christmas mood within these old walls.
