In the Christmas spirit yet? The Regensburg Christmas Market awaits!

Winter golfing is a passion for the dedicated and may not be everyone’s top choice. Yet, a golf hotel in Germany like the Romantik Hotel Hirschen in Parsberg offers more than fairways during the chilly season. A standout winter attraction available until 23 December 2023, is the Regensburg Christmas Market.

The Christmas market on the Neupfarrplatz square is one of the oldest and most traditional Christmas markets in Germany, dating back to the 18th century. In festively decorated wooden stalls, exhibitors present a variety of Christmas decorations, handicrafts, gifts, and culinary delights. The aromas of mulled wine, roasted almonds, and gingerbread fill the air, creating a cosy atmosphere. The opening of the market by the Christ Child, who descends from a balcony and delivers a short speech, attracts a particularly large number of intrigued visitors. Additionally, the market features regular performances by choirs and musicians, who enhance the festive mood and spread holiday cheer.

The Regensburg Christmas Market is a wonderful place to soak up the festive atmosphere of the Christmas season, discover traditional customs, and enjoy delicious food and handmade arts and crafts.
