Markets in the Harz Mountains

The Harz offers tourists, holidaymakers and locals a wide variety of markets all year round. From mountain farmers' markets and Christmas markets to medieval markets, Germany's largest low mountain range offers numerous opportunities to enjoy Harz specialities. In addition to typical Harz delicacies, some Harz markets offer both handmade arts and crafts products such as woodcarvings and hand-woven baskets, as well as an extensive supporting programme. Amid fire shows, jousting tournaments and hands-on experiences, everyone should find something to their liking. Above all, the medieval markets are by no means just for adults, as children can demonstrate their skills at candle-drawing or crossbow shooting. On some stages, the markets are sometimes accompanied by musical interludes that entertain the market visitors during a varied stroll. The Christmas markets in the Harz Mountains are also particularly worth seeing, offering visitors delicacies such as gingerbread, roasted almonds, mulled wine or baked apples in closely packed stalls. Especially after dark, the markets shine in full splendour thanks to the countless fairy lights and create a particularly cosy atmosphere. Here at Harzspots.com you will find an overview of the dates and times of all the markets worth seeing in the Harz. Have fun discovering them!
