A castle Christmas market in Regensburg

Well-preserved Roman, German Gothic and Bavarian architecture create distinct backdrops for stalls dotted along Neupfarrplatz and Spitalgarten. However, the courtyard of Thurn and Taxis Palace (also called the Palace of St. Emmeram) is the most festive part of town. At night, the castle facade glows in brilliant shades of blue, and the market is illuminated by candlelight. 

Location: Emmeramsplatz 5, 93047 Regensburg

Christmas market dates: Nov. 19 through Dec. 23, 2021 (closed Sunday, Nov. 21)

Helpful hints: The market opens daily at noon Friday through Sunday, 3 pm Monday through Thursday. An entrance fee is charged. The castle is in the old town, and the nearest parking is available at Parkhaus Petersweg.
