From 1st December until 6th January the fortress will be festively decorated with hundreds of Moravian Stars and Christmas trees. Enjoy a contemplative walk around the fortress plateau und visit the exhibitions. The Historic-romantic Christmas market will not take place in this year.
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.
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.
