WHERE: Poznan, Poland
WHEN: from 19 November to 23 December 2023
Beautiful. Suggestive. Romantic. Cozy… Christmas in Poznan fills the eyes and warms the heart.
In its charming market square, among colorful buildings and the splendid setting of the Town Hall, you can experience the full Advent atmosphere. Among magnificent colors and scents of biscuits and sweets.
Admire snowflakes and beautiful ice figures
With the family.
Or maybe as a couple, letting the most romantic part of the city do its part. Liberty Square, with its Ferris wheel, is a clear example of this.
In Poznan you will be able to admire the most beautiful market in Poland and one of the best in Europe. This was confirmed, last year, by the judgment of almost 10,000 Best European Destinations users.

Old Market Square and Liberty Square are two symbolic places of Christmas in Poznan.
Right here the markets are set up and the main Christmas events take place.
This is the splendid Old Market Square, the beating heart of the city.
A magical location where you can admire dozens of stalls offering handicrafts and local traditional products.
A riot of sparkling lights, colors and scents, among the wooden houses.
Some with more or less extravagant shapes.
Very popular Christmas balls, for a gift, or personal.
A sip of mulled wine, to warm up.
Chocolate lovers, however, will not be indifferent to a good slice of wuzetka, the dessert with cocoa sponge cake, ganache, cream …
Ok program is enriched with events and lots of entertainment throughout the month of December. Concerts and Christmas carols. The traditional contest of the most beautiful nativity scenes. The splendid festival of ice sculptures.
The markets are open every day, from the end of November to December 23, from 11:00 to 21:00
In less than 10 minutes on foot you can reach this other symbol of Christmas in Poznan.
In addition to the traditional stalls, with souvenirs and typical products, you can take the opportunity to take a ride on the suggestive Ferris Wheel. It will be possible to admire the city from above, all illuminated.
A real show!

On the central stage of Stary Rytek, from 08 to 10 December, extraordinary ice artists will compete… with chisels.
