The place to be for the Christmas Market

Small enough to really have a feel of the history but large enough to have lots to look at or taste.

The centre of Weimar is very interesting with a wealth of beautiful buildings. It has a rather strange history too but the old architecture is outstanding.

A great place to enjoy oneself during the Christmas - New Year nightmarket. Plenty of traditional food and drink outlets, music and happy people in an atmospheric town square.

Quite traditional German Christmas Market - and there us nothing wrong with that. The quality of the stalls is generally good with less of the tat that one often finds. Prices are good too. The market is concentrated around the Market square, which is helpful - you don't have to go searching for bits of it.

Quite honestly, I've seen more attractive market squares, but a good place for a sit down and a bite. As in most German cities, I was amazed at the amount of reconstruction that has taken place after the twin tragedies of the war and East German neglect.

For some people the Theaterplatz is the center of Weimar, others would say it is Park an der Ilm, as much as I love those places, the Markt is my favorite part of the town. There is always something happening there, sometimes theater outside the Tourist Information office, sometimes there are markets happening in the square. If you are there... More

It's a pretty ordinary market square, I don't know why it's rated so high. Not bad, but not exceptional.

The Market has buildings of different syle, but the total look is an unity. Splendid place for taking puictures. Several nice cafes around and the meeting place for a guided city walk.

As it is located in the city center of weimar therefore, it is nice to see there especially in summer when there are seats outside and you can have a coffee and look to a historical place which some pictures of WWII was taken from there. It has a key access to schillerhaus, goethehaus, musikhochschule, bauhaus-uni and most of the... More
