A real highlight

WeihnachtsZeitreise in the old town around castle Berleburg from the 13th to the 15th of December

WeihnachtsZeitreise in Bad Berleburg – a winter tale. Every year, ten thousand visitors come to the market spectacle in the old part of Berleburg around the castle. A fairytale scenery is the setting for the lively market. It is a real highlight of the organising community, which invites you to visit the market this time from 13th to 15th December.

The focus is on Christmas customs from the rustic medieval age to the glittering present. Every year on the third weekend in December, mercenaries and knights stay in the protection of the Berleburger castle. A number of jugglers, musicians and marketers join them. On Saturday, at 11 o'clock, the herald opens the market in his costume.

The merchants present their craftsmanship in the courtyard of the castle. In front of the gatehouse, the offer is a bit more colourful and broader when WeihnachtsZeitreise travels from the hearty life in the middle ages into the good new times. There is much to discover – Christmas magic and winter pleasures for the whole family!

Above this scenery floats festive music from the brass band and smells of biscuits and evergreen branches. The program is created by Fantasies on stilts “Corpus Titanium”, medieval sounds of “Donna & Doria”, fairytale “Escapia von Drachenzeh”, Joker Gustav Basseltan, Fire theater “Chapeau Claque Rouge” and many other artists.

In the evening, torchlight and open fire make the atmosphere crackle – the best time for a romantic walk around the market! A grand highlight will be the evening spectacle with all the artists on Saturday at 7.15 pm in the castle grounds.
