More details of the place of event


Ore Mountains and Christmas also stand for contemplation and a blaze of light. In accordance with the miner's yearning for light, white fairy lights are shining on market places, light angels and miner figures as well as Schwibbögen (typical Christmas arches full of lights) are illuminating the windows.

Especially touching are the mountain and miner's parades that take place every year in historic habits in the strongholds of former mining. Originally, the miners' processions and parades served to honour the territorial lord and his retinue on special occasions such as weddings or visits from distinguished. Today, they are the highlight of the Erzgebirge Christmas markets and the quarter-year celebrations dating from the old mining calendar. The miners' marches associated with them are unique to Saxony.

It all ends with the large final parade of the Saxony Regional Association in Annaberg-Buchholz on the 4th Sunday of Advent.
