Advent market at Burg Ludwigstein

Atmospheric Christmas market on the 7th and 8th of December 2019 at the castle Ludwigstein.

On the 7th and 8th of december the time has come again, the castle will be decorated with all its rooms beautiful winterly and festive. Let yourself be enchanted by the special atmosphere during Advent at Burg Ludwigstein! You are invited to stroll through the lovingly decorated walls of the castle, to admire handicrafts, to buy handicrafts, to win a raffle or to admire the crib exhibition. This year’s emphasis is on cribs from the Erzgebirge and detailed Christmas dollhouses. This year around 40 exhibitors will present their self-designed goods, including jewelery made of deer antler, Christmas decorations, glass art, silk tunics, wood decoration, beekeeping products and much more. Everyone should find a suitable Christmas present for their loved ones.
While listening to live music in the castle courtyard, you can enjoy mulled wine, coffee and cake. Also sausage, potato pancakes and crepes will be back. The youngest visitors can work in the craft room or watch movies in the children’s cinema.
A special feature this year: some exhibitors will present their work live on the market. So you can marvel at how baskets are braided, knives sharpened or wool spun.

The market will be open from 10:00 am on 8th and 9th 12th, closing on Saturday at 6pm, on Sunday at 5pm. Admission costs 3.50 € for adults and 2.00 € for young people over 14 years and holders of the Ehrenamtscard. A free shuttle bus will take you from the car park to the castle and back.

Organizer of the Advent market is the working group European Youth Weeks at Burg Ludwigstein e.V. The proceeds of the event will be used to finance the European Youth Week, which takes place every year in summer at Burg Ludwigstein.
