Finally, the most beautiful festive season of the year begins – it's Christmas in Bad Reichenhall. Beautiful gifts for yourself or your loved ones are chosen to bring joy on Christmas Eve. How about a vacation in Bad Reichenhall?
The small, fine Christkindlmarkt at the Rathausplatz, which invites visitors from near and far to enjoyable experiences, provides the most beautiful Christmas atmosphere.
The scent of gingerbread, cinnamon and mulled wine, of chocolate and scented oils, regional specialties and handmade goods enchant the visitors. Music plays softly in the background, children's eyes light up, it glitters and sparkles festively.
Groups of trees with white baubles and large illuminated objects in the trees bathe the city center in fairytale light at dusk.
Loud and scary – the „Kramperl“ are coming!
On December 5 and 6 it could be scary in the pedestrian zone - the Kramperl are coming! Their path through the city is lined with children and adults - the brave ones in front, the more cautious ones prefer to keep their distance. Here they come! Creepy wooden masks, skins and rods they carry, the big, clanging bells announce the passers from afar. But watch out: if you're not fast enough, you can be caught by the lively fellows with the rod! A pre-Christmas custom that is very much appreciated by all generations in the Alpine town. However, the Christkindlmarkt is a Kramperl-free zone.
At the Christkindlmarkt, music groups play their atmospheric tunes and sometimes also the potato brothers serenade spontaneous in their Christmas hut.
TIP: On December 5 and 6, St. Nicholas / Father Christmas visits the Christkindlmarkt and is already looking forward to the wishes of the good Bad Reichenhall girls and boys.
