Gingerbread, mulled wine, franconian delicacies and "Christmas in the woods".

When visiting Schweinfurt during Advent, you have the choice between a lively Christmas market in the center of town and a woodsy Christmas experience in the company of moose and lynx.

The backdrop for the Schweinfurt Christmas market is especially festive: The stands are in front of the historical town hall and there is a live nativity scene in the center of the market. The Christmas market features candles, Christmas decorations, pottery, mangers, music and visits by the Christ Child. A novelty is the giant Advent calendar that is a replica of the Schrotturm tower, a symbol of the city of Schweinfurt.

A special treat for the entire family is the annual “Waldweihnacht” (Christmas in the Woods) at the wild animal park “An den Eichen.” The “Waldweihnacht” offers a wonderful atmosphere and it includes a varied entertainment program with music and a few surprises – plus you get to enjoy the animals.
