Christmas events in the Ore Mountains

Do you know what a "Mettenschicht" is? Why nothing happens at Christmas markets in the Ore Mountains without pyramids? Or what makes a "Hutzenabend" by the fireplace so cosy? The Ore Mountains welcome you with unique Christmas events and traditions, as authentic today as in the olden days. Mountain parades and processions, light festivals, nativity plays, lace bobbins and hoop turning, it's not folklore for show for visitors but an inner need of the people in the Ore Mountains and an expression of their deep attachment to their homeland. Christian tradition and the long mining tradition interweave here to create a distinct flair. You are cordially invited to the Ore Mountains for a special Christmas time.
