The fortress gates are open again and we are looking forward to your visit! Please understand that the museum is currently accessible with restrictions only and special hygiene rules for visits to the fortress apply.
Since February 2018, the rooms at the Well House offer a new museum experience. 20 years after the former exhibition was opened in February 1998, it has now been newly designed and technically modernised.
EVERY ADVENT SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: The historic-romantic Christmas market will welcome you with medieval enjoyments, charming art handicrafts and the play of jugglers and musicians on the Advent weekends...
A Sky of Stars floods the Christmas market in the casemates (Kasemattenweihnacht) with mild light. It extends the Historic-romantic Christmas market of Königstein Fortress the second time in this year. Many tradesmen offer regional arts and crafts, local delicacies and compelling treats of the Fortress. Christmas music on the market place and in the garrison church, humorous theatre plays for all ages (in German only) and charming jugglery will give a very special atmosphere to the vivid market life.
