Anticipation everywhere: The Christmas markets in the district of Ebersberg – Ebersberg

It’s Christmas time in the district. The first Christmas trees are up and the Christmas lights have been installed in most communities. However, the start of Advent could bring some people into a tight deadline, because this weekend there is a lot on offer almost everywhere in the district – from the classic Christmas market to the magic of huts in the forest. A little overview:


“Meeting friends and neighbors on the market square, drinking a mulled wine and enjoying the pre-Christmas atmosphere. That has been sorely missed in the last two years,” says Mayor Ulrich Proske. On the weekend of November 26th and 27th it’s finally that time again: The Ebersberg Christmas market opens its doors for two days.

A stroll through the Christmas market, where the market people put everyone in the Advent mood with their range of products, naturally also includes physical well-being: mulled wine, sausages, Reiberdatschi, langosch, tarte flambée, crêpes, roasted almonds, hot chestnuts and much more.

The organizer of the Christmas market is the Ebersberg local branch in the Association of Independent Bavarians (BdS). At dusk, when the market is at its most beautiful, countless lights shine on many of the around 80 large and small Christmas trees that the BdS brought from the Ebersberg forest. A new Christ child greets visitors to the market from the town hall balcony: It is Johanna Wach from the Kolping Youth. She is 18 years old and has just graduated from high school.

In the “living workshop”, the Bergmeister art forge once again shows old handicrafts. In addition, you can see with a turner and a glassblower how beautiful, artistic things are made from blanks. On Sunday, the child protection association will do handicrafts in a hut with children.

Walter Gigler put together the varied stage program, and Sepp Riedl will lead through the program again. There is singing and music and the children listen to the stories on stage that Peter Kießling tells as a grandfather sitting in an armchair. And of course, as every year, Santa gives the children presents.

In addition to around 50 cozy huts, pavilions and market stalls, which are again lovingly designed by the clubs, institutions and business people, the “yurt” known from the Forest and Environment Museum will also be presented. Here, in the nomad tent, the topic of sustainability is brought to the Christmas market. Associations, organizations and individuals have the opportunity to present themselves and their work in this regard. Workshops and handicrafts are also offered here.

The Christmas market in Ebersberg opens on Saturday, November 26 from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Marienplatz and on Sunday, November 27 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Many shops around Marienplatz are open again for the Christmas market. All specialist shops in the e-EinZ shopping center are also open on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. More information about the Christmas market at


In Poing, too, the Christmas market stalls are set up in the center of the town just in time for the first Advent. On Saturday and Sunday, November 26th and 27th, from 2 p.m. on the Poinger market square, the motto is: Advent, Advent, a little light is burning. The people of Poing begin the Christmas season with mulled wine, gingerbread and bratwurst rolls around the big Christmas tree: the Poinger Vereinskartell, headed by Peter Keegan, is organizing the Christmas market together with the municipality of Poing for the fifth time. 17 stands will be there on both days, there will be music on the Christmas stage and Santa Claus will drop by with a sack of presents. Poing’s First Mayor, Thomas Stark, will accompany him to the market at 4 p.m. on Saturday: “I am delighted that our Christmas market can finally take place again after a two-year break. It should be the start of a healthy and peaceful Christmas season.”

Tradition: Visitors to Poing can look for small gifts at 17 stands.

A special feature of the Christmas market is that the Christmas stalls are mainly provided by Poinger associations. Eleven clubs offer classic mulled wine, hot aperol, eggnog, beer and children’s punch, as well as sausage rolls, hot potato chips, shashlik, all kinds of soups and of course honey gingerbread, cookies and waffles. You can also find a lot of Christmas decorations: from Advent wreaths and Christmas tree balls to beeswax candles and felt things, the complete Christmas equipment is represented. The Christmas stands of the associations are supplemented by four private suppliers, a stand from the adult education center with handicrafts and a competition hut from the municipality of Poing. The Office for Waste Management raises awareness of the issue of avoiding and separating waste so that the festival at the end of the year can be celebrated as sustainably as possible.

The highlight of Saturday is certainly the visit of St. Nicholas, who distributes 400 packages to all the children immediately after the Christmas speech by Mayor Thomas Stark. This will then play at around 5 p.m Youth Orchestra of the Music School of Vaterstetten under the direction of Bernd Kölmel, which will start at 6 p.m Music band Poing be replaced with Christmas sounds. The first day of the Christmas market ends at 10 p.m. before opening its doors again on Sunday at 2 p.m. Thomas Schuh and Ines Wagner will then ensure the Christmas spirit on the Christmas stage from 4 p.m. From 5.30 p.m. he sings Poinger Dreigesang Advent carols and at 6 p.m. gospel singers visit the market to let the Christmas hustle and bustle fade away until 7 p.m.


The Christmas market in the community of Vaterstetten will take place over two days for the first time: on November 26th and 27th between the town hall and the parish church “Zum Edelen Blut Christi”. In the small hut village, the citizens can expect a colorful mixture of market stalls with small handicrafts and a diverse culinary offer. There is also a varied supporting program designed by local groups and clubs.

Tradition: In Vaterstetten, the market will take place again this year in front of the town hall.

From turning work to woolen hats, Advent decorations to soaps, there are many things that are suitable as Advent or Christmas gifts. The “Children’s Hut” is new, in which local groups of children (the natural Indians, kindergarten children from the Katharina-von-Bora-Haus, the competitive swimmers from TSV Vaterstetten and the Baldham day care center) take turns selling handicrafts or baked goods for a good cause. Because all income from the children’s hut goes to social projects in the community area.

Visitors are spoiled with culinary delights from commercial providers – such as “Landlust” and “Sea Bass” – as well as from local clubs and institutions. From bratwurst to fish soup to waffles and cookies, there is a lot on offer here. Of course there is also mulled wine, children’s punch and much more. The music school in Vaterstetten, the school band of the grammar school, the Ammerthal brass music, Kevin in Space and some day-care centers with their small but excellent supporting programme. Furthermore, a professional fire performance will take place for the first time on Saturday evening. On Sunday, St. Nicholas visits the market to distribute his presents to the children, and the “fairy tale uncle” reads pre-Christmas stories for the little ones in the cozy parish library on both days.

The Vaterstettener Hüttenzauber is open on Saturday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sunday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.


The Hohenlinden Christkindlmarkt is taking place for the 27th time this year, and the participants are convinced that the principle of the market has stood the test: “One for all, all for one.” This means that all income goes into one pot, the community gets a large part for social purposes, the other part is divided between the clubs. More than 20 clubs and groups are taking part, and there will also be a living nativity scene again.

Tradition: St. Nicholas and his angels have also announced themselves for the Hohenlinden Christmas market.

To get in the mood for the Advent weekend, there will be an Advent concert by the traditional costume association in the Josef parish church on Saturday, November 26 at 5:30 p.m., and the Christmas market stalls will open at the same time. At 7 p.m., the Christ Child himself will drop by and say a few words. The firecrackers, the Youth Choir Chorazon and the trumpeters of the Hohenlinden Music School are responsible for the supporting program. On Sunday the market will be opened at 11.30 a.m. by the Christkind and the Hohenlinden trumpeters. Handicrafts are offered for the children in the rectory. At 1 p.m. the living nativity scene will be occupied. At 1.30 p.m. children’s theater and carriage rides follow, at 3 p.m. the Bairer Alphorn players perform and at 4 p.m. the young choir Ubi Caritas.


The Advent lights in Pienzenau on Saturday, November 26, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. have been announced as a “slightly different Advent market”. What is special about it is that all sorts of groups and many individual citizens have come forward and brought in their ideas for Advent, their own skills and a lot of their own commitment to the start of the Advent season. There is music, handmade gifts, Christmas decorations and much more – but not concentrated in one place, but at the home of the Pienzenauers involved. So you can combine buying presents and getting in the mood for Christmas with a walk through the village.

Forest house Hubertus

The small “Woidmarkt” at the Forsthaus Hubertus will open its doors again this year on all four Advent weekends, starting at 11 a.m. In addition to Christmas decorations and various sales stands, there will be hot food and drinks that can be enjoyed around the campfire.
