Its roots are said to lie in the 14th century St. Nicholas markets, since 1972 it is held in the heart of the old town. In addition to numerous stalls where you can feast and buy small gifts, there are also activities such as the Himmelswerkstatt in the New Town Hall, the Christkindl-Postamt and much more.
