Shopping at the foot of the castle hill in Meissen

Meißen – unique shopping with historical flair

The medieval cityscape of Meißen, a city more than 1000 years old, makes shopping and walking an inviting prospect. Uniqueness and liveliness mark out the boutiques, galleries, specialist shops, antique dealers and craft shops. Away from the hustle and bustle of a large city, Meißen offers a comfortable and relaxed setting for shopping. The same goes for the city’s range of culinary options. A shopping spree can be finished off nicely in one of the cafés or pubs in the city’s lively streets.


During Advent, the historic Meißen market place with the late Gothic guildhall, the Renaissance town houses and the Church of our Lady composes an atmospheric backdrop for the romantic Christmas market. In festively decorated booths the merchants offer their Christmas goods. A blaze of lights, fir sprigs and Christmas scents create a unique flair that enchants more and more visitors every year. Whether Advent music in the Church of Our Lady, stagings of fairy tales in the theatre or the Christmas exhibition in the municipal museum, you can reach everything within a few minutes walk from the Christmas market. During Christmas time, the magnificent guildhall building of Meißen turns into a gigantic Advent calendar that hides 24 Christmas surprises behind its large blue shutters. These are revealed when between the 30th November and 24th December every day a window is opened (Monday to Friday 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday 3:30 pm, Christmas Eve 11 am).
