Christmas heralds the time of the year when Altötting unveils its most wonderful side, as the hustle and bustle of the market and the profusion of cultural goings-on take place with the inimitable festive backdrop of twinkling lights.

Running from 27 November until 20 December with free entry, Altötting’s traditional Christkindlmarkt draws in the crowds to its spectacular setting in the Baroque Kapellplatz square. Adorned
for the festivities, Altötting’s centre becomes a hive of activity, where families, friends and colleagues gather for a warming glass of mulled wine and yuletide treats. As Christmas draws ever nearer, the array of artisanal handcrafted gifts will leave you spoilt for choice.
