Advent and Christmas in Český Krumlov

Would you like to enjoy the time before Christmas without stress, hurry and experience pleasant atmosphere of the Advent? Then come to Český Krumlov! We have prepared an interesting programme for all the Advent weekends and Christmas holidays.

The traditional old-fashioned Czech advent market will begin on the 29th November and will entise you with the scent of Christmas punch, mulled wine and Christmas cookies. The magic of town during Advent will be accompanied by our traditional programme: turning-on the Christmas tree lights, carol singing, present give-aways on St. Nicholas Day, writing to Father Christmas, Bear Christmas and revelation of the Advent market patron. The poetic ending to pre-Christmas festivities is the live nativity scene - biblical story potrayed through dancing and singing accompanied by exhuberant musicians.

Our Advent programme will be further complemented by various Christmas concerts, fairy-tales, performances by the local Elementary School of Arts, events in the Children and Youth Centre, picture shooting in Museum Fotoatelier Seidel, exhibitons in the Regional Museum or special Christmas tours of town and Christmas raft cruises.
