In Advent each year, the Altötting Christkindlmarkt [Christmas market] conjures up a very special atmosphere in the centre of the pilgrimage town. The beautifully decorated stalls, the chains of lights and candles and the scent of mulled wine, hot chestnuts and cinnamon stars make the hearts of all visitors beat faster. It comes as no surprise that the market is a very special insider tip for Christmas markets in Bavaria.
The Altötting Christkindlmarkt 2018 takes place from 24 November to 16 December. The opening hours are as follows:
Monday – Thursday from 2 pm to 8 pm
Friday/Saturday/Sunday from 11 am to 8 pm
You can visit the Altötting Christkindlmarkt free of charge!
The grand opening is on 30 November at 6 pm following the blessing of the Advent wreath at the Stiftspfarrkirche at 5 pm. Music entertainment will be provided by the folk music ensemble of the Max Keller School.
