Castle Christmas market in Kirkel
14 - 15 December 2019
The small town of Kirkel puts on a special Christmas event each year at the foot of its local castle ruin.
The Kirkeler Burgweynacht (Kirkel castle Christmas) in the shape of a festively decorated artisan village is much liked by visitors for its medieval atmosphere with stalls, candles, torches, trumpeters, drummers, flute and lute players. Try the tarte flambée speciality (Flammkuchen) and homemade potato fritters and wash it down with mead or punch. As a special event for children, a lantern procession with torch-bearers and music is organised each night.
