Christmas Markets & Christmas Traditions

One of the most romantic Christmas Markets certainly is Lindau’s Harbour Christmas Market. From Oberstaufen you can easily get there by train, the island station is located directly towards the market.

The "angel-flight" at 6.30 p.m. is the daily highlight at the Schlossweihnacht in Isny.

In Kempten you can find one of the largest Christmas Markets in the Allgäu. It has an own Christmas stage, where numerous concerts and readings take place.

A typical custom around St. Nicolas Day is the Bärbele- und Klausentreiben. Young, unmarried men (Klausen) and women (Bärbele) stroll through the villages in the disguise of scary creatures, to banish winter spirits. On 4th December the Bärbeletreiben takes place in Oberstaufen and the Klausen stroll through the village on 5th & 6th December.
