Fort Königstein welcomes you to a historical-romantic Christmas market, illuminated by countless chains of lights and bearing the motto “Königstein – a winter wonderland”. The finest experience in Saxon Switzerland is the medieval Christmas market inside the fortress with jesters, toy makers and craftsmen, and demonstrations of ancient craftsmanship. A secret tip is to explore the underground Kasematte-Weihnacht. By the light of the Herrnhuter Sterne, local tradesmen offer natural products. Children love the cosy fairytale grotto, the miniature railway and elf workshop, a visit with Father Christmas, and probably the longest advent calendar in Germany. Reflective Advent music and many decorated Christmas trees conjure up a unique festive atmosphere in the fortress.
