What to expect

The scent of mulled wine, roasted almonds, ginger bread and bratwurst lies in the air seductively every year around Christmas in the market streets of Chemnitz. During the time of Advent, the city attracts its visitors with over 200 booths located all around the city hall and thus invites everyone to pre-Christmas strolling, rummaging and savouring. Besides Christmassy treats and lovely present ideas, traditional folk art as e.g. smoker men, Schwibbögen (fancy candle holders) and pyramids from the Ore Mountains can be gazed at.

With the steam express train you reach the metropolis of the Franconia Main region Würzburg on Saturday of the Second Advent. There, the beauty of this Baroque historical centre will very likely enchant you. Visit the Christmas market in the historical inner courtyard of the city hall and enjoy the very unique pre-Christmas atmosphere in Würzburg.

This trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.
