Original Ore Mountains Christmas Market - 1st Virtual Christmas Market01.11.2020 - 28.02.2021
Many things are being rethought and redesigned in 2020 - including the Christmas markets. From 1 November, the Seiffener Drechsler cooperative Dregeno presents the first truly virtual Christmas market, which is more than just an online shop with a Christmas category. The sales proceeds - this is also unique - will directly and fully benefit the regional producers.
Fascinating 360-degree panoramic shots capture the magic of the Seiffen Christmas and are translated into a virtual world using the latest technologies, where you can move around to your heart's content and discover countless details. If you like something, you can get closer, zoom in and click on articles, pictures and videos that tell you more about the production process and the people behind it.
Try it out:
- From 01/11/2020, enter www.erzgebirgischer-weihnachtsmarkt.online in your Internet browser (only in German language available). And suddenly you are in Seiffen! Against the background of the world-famous Seiffen church, beautifully decorated stalls invite you to discover the diversity of the Erzgebirge.
- Get closer to the Christmas market stalls with the mouse or with your finger on your touch display. You can click on the items and get more information. In many stalls photos or videos tell you how the articles are created. Just click on them and look over the shoulders of the craftsmen in their workshops.
- If you want to buy something, click on the shop link. This will take you directly to the manufacturer's online shop. Here you carry out the entire purchase procedure, pay electronically and in a few days you will have your piece of original Erzgebirge in your hands.
