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. In addition, the old town can be explored on exciting theme tours - for example with the night watchman.

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.
