Christmas Market

Sibiu, Romania

The Christmas Market in Sibiu began as a cultural project initiated by Dr. H.C. Barbara Schöfnagel, the Social Attaché of the Austrian Embassy in Romania, in cooperation with the Sibiu County in the year 2007, the year in which Sibiu was the European Cultural Capital. It is inspired by the Christmas Markets in Austria. The Christmas Markets became over the years a European tradition like the classic Christmas Markets in Vienna, the "hyggelig" Christmas markets in Denmark or the Advent in Zadar.

Besides the beautiful Christmas decorations and lights, as well as a big Christmas tree, people can enjoy the magical winter landscape projections on the buildings in Sibiu’s Big Square, like the Brukenthal National Museum. One can also take a stroll by the numerous wooden houses that offer winter beverages like punch and hot wine with cinnamon. To eat, one can choose between sweets like gingerbread, candies and Christmas food like roasted chestnuts. Everyone finds that one wooden house that has exactly what one desires.
