Christmas market at the Frauenkirche

Good ideas made tangible
Around the Frauenkirche and on the Münzgasse are stalls selling pottery, glass ornaments and Vogtland lace – plus a gleaming, eight-metre-tall pyramid with steps. There are plenty of great photo opportunities here, with the great pyramid in the background or simply with a hand-carved wooden replica. Santa Claus visits this charming market every day from 4 pm onwards, when he distributes seasonal gifts to children.
