If you want to get the best out of a German tradition, then a visit to Rothenburg's Reiterlesmarkt is a must during the Advent period.
Every year, the medieval town of Rothenburg is transformed into a winter's fairytale. As far back as the 15th century, Advent festivities have been accompanied by a wonderful Christmas market. This market can look back on over 500 years of living heritage that has hardly changed a lot since its historic origins. There are also numerous cultural events held to coincide with the Christmas market. However, the highlight of the market is the appearance of the figure of the "Rothenburger Reiterle" at the festive opening ceremony.
Visitors to the Christmas Market can enjoy the wonderful view from the Town Hall Tower until 8 p.m. every Friday and Saturday.
