Decorative candle arches burn brightly from windows across Schneeberg, bathing the town in a festive glow. This magical atmosphere reaches its high point at the Christmas market, which is located in the baroque centre. Musical accompaniment comes courtesy of brass bands, choirs and miners' ensembles. The great blue spruce and the Christmas pyramid with its 33 figures illuminate the Christmas market. Pay special attention to the Christmas stalls, which reflect the baroque architecture of the surrounding area. The popular Festival of Lights incorporates the miners' evening parade, a grand occasion featuring music and traditional costumes. Experience real folk art at the “Friends and Light Festival”.
