The Chemnitz Christmas Market will take place this year with restrictions due to corona. It will begin on Wednesday, 25 November and it will end on Wednesday 23. December. It is open daily from 10 am to 8 pm.

There will not be a large, contiguous area this year. Five areas are planned in the city centre: Neumarkt, Markt, Jakobikirchplatz, Düsseldorfer Platz, Am Wall or Theaterplatz. In order to allow as many dealers as possible to participate, only cottages of seven and ten square metres are set up, provided by the city. There will also be two show shops for children.

Due to the current infection situation, a visit can only take place with access restrictions. It is planned to have the possibility of registering via app. This is currently being discussed with a company from Saxony. Registration will also be possible directly at the access points.

The opening time is limited to 8 pm. There will be only mulled wine without additional liqueurs (“Shot”). Currently, the city does not provide for a mask requirement. However, this depends on the respective infection situation and the compliance of the visitors with the minimum distances.
