Programme

The Christmas Market offers lots of things to see and do for the whole family. The Old Great Square fills with high quality handicrafts, christmassy delicacies and various music, theatre and circus performances. And of course, there’s also Santa Claus and his family!

In addition, you can enjoy the lovely winter weather with cup of warm juice, find something nice in the Christmas ornaments’ exchange point, play the Christmassy Wheel of Fortune and escape the hustle and bustle to the Christmas concerts of the Old Town Hall.
