In the year 1464, 43 establishments serving wine are recorded. Out of such a tradition, the wine festival has also emerged as the festival of landlords. Romantics are not the only ones enjoying their wine on the last Saturday in July, in the streets, squares and under the old town arcades, everywhere decorated with coloured lighting for a special ambiente.

Night Flea Market

Haggling and bargaining by candlelight and moonshine. There are many flea markets but only one Wasserburger Nachtflohmarkt. Over 10,000 visitors equipped with torches, go looking for rarities and bargains – antique or otherwise. For many people buying or selling is not really important. They are just there to experience this unique atmosphere. The flea market takes place from the first Friday night in August until the following Saturday.

Christmas in Wasserburg

The traditional Advent in Wasserburg still offers something different. The tastefully decorated alleyways and numerous individual shops set the mood for a Christmas shopping spree. Everything in the Chrismas spirit is reflected in the small booths of the Christkindlmarkt (Christmas market) in the style of the old town houses. The Christmas Bazaar in the Hofstatt has been a further addition in recent years. The citizens of Wasserburg however, still come up with something new each year, such as the old town Christmas Crib Trail, the Angel´s pathway or Advents Exhibitions in the Museum. A visit to Wasserburg during Advent lights up not only the children´s eyes.
