The Christmas Market in Wroclaw
The annual tradition of the Market in Wrocław – come and see! We invite you to the Christmas Market from 17th November to 22nd December 2017 from 10.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m.!
The Christmas Market in Wrocław is one of the most beautiful of its kind. During this special time of the year the heart of Wrocław starts beating faster… Wrocław’s Market Square becomes the background for a fairytale scenery… Among Christmas trees smelling of a forest, the aroma of mulled wine and chocolate gingerbread, a multitude of attractions and surprises await the inhabitants of Wrocław and tourists. The magic of Christmas will charm everybody!
In the Fairytale Copse beautiful fairytales will await the youngest guests of the Christmas Market. Their magical visual and sound will lead all toddlers into a real fairytale world. “Little Red Riding Hood”, “The Brave Little Tailor”, “Snow White” or “Pinokio” are only a part of this amazing adventure.
Near the pillory next to the traditional Christmas Windmill a new house will appear where in the morning hours children from kindergarten will be able to take part in handicraft workshops painting Christmas glass balls and use the carousels on the Christmas Market. The Land of Dwarves and Reindeers will be near the Fredro Monument. Next to the “Dwarf’s House”, which is guarded by lamplighter dwarves, the Dwarf’s Mushroom will appear, which you will be able to enter and where you can take an awesome picture. Nearby there will be the illuminated sleigh with presents and next to it Santa Claus’s reindeers with Rudolph.
Next to Wrocław’s Christmas Tree there will be a novelty for children – the “Rudolph and friends” carousel. On the north frontage of the Market the Fireplace House with outdoor fireplaces is sure to appear, where you will be able to warm yourself on a real flame and the aromatic mulled wine, as well as the Gate of the Christmas Market, which greets all guests from Świdnicka Street and leads into a magical Christmas atmosphere.
The Christmas Market is also an ideal place for those, who want to give their dear ones something special. In the beautiful wooden houses, you will be able to choose Christmas gifts among a multitude of rarities. This year there will be unique Ukrainian pottery, resin jewellery, decorative bags made from natural linen fabric with colorful motifs, Christmas pottery, cosy woolen Lithuanian blankets, natural cosmetics, handicraft decorative articles.
On the Christmas Market, you can also buy: scented soap from Marseille, handmade Christmas decorations and trees, mascots and blankets for children, silver and gold-plated jewellery with gemstones or beautiful felt bags with folk motifs.
There will also be handicraft from the furthest corners of the world. In the wooden houses, there will be patchwork goods from Nepal, decorative articles and jewellery from Zambia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Congo, traditional buddhist sculptures, musical instruments, colorful jewel cases from India and Thailand.
Enthusiasts of handicraft will not only be able to buy these amazing products, but also watch how they are being made. Near the Christmas tree, you will be able to order beautiful, handpainted glass balls with wishes or an inscription, a souvenir coin minted by a mint master or one of a kind personal horseshoe for luck made by a smith.
If you touch his hat three times, all wishes and dreams will probably come true… This pleasant dwarf, who grants Christmas wishes, appears only once a year, only during the Christmas Market in Wrocław.
