The Esslingen Medieval Market and Christmas Market 2021
(Show more dates)
For almost four weeks at the Medieval Market, merchants in historical garments offer their goods for sale just as they did hundreds of years ago. Craftsmen like pewterers, felt-makers, tinder-makers, blacksmiths, rope-makers, basket-makers, broom-makers or glass-blowers demonstrate their craftsmanship. Furthermore, in the streets and on various stages artists fascinate their audience with juggling, music and nonsense.
There's also lots to discover at the various workshops, where visitors can learn the old market language, find out how to smoke food, take part in a stick-fighting course or produce their own tinder. Once they get there, the fire show begins and the winter is welcomed with drums and song.
