Reiterlesmarkt, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Fanconia, Bavaria

The Reiterlesmarkt is a centuries-old tradition in Rothenburg and is situated at the Grünen markt, behind the Town Hall, the square behind the church of St James and along the surrounding streets and is one of the most beautiful markets in Germany.

The Medieval town centre is filled with decorated stalls displaying their festive goods where you will be able to find that special gift that you are looking for. Look out for the Thuringian Glass-blown goods here. In the square behind St James is a carousel for the children.

The highlight of the Christmas Maket is the appearance of “Reiterle” who is a mythical figure whose origins are from ancient times and is today a friendly messanger.

While visiting the Christmas Market look out for the nearby Doll and Toy Museum in Pfaffengasse, open each day from 9:30 – 18:00 and the lovely nativity scene under the Lichterhof Town Hall.
