A special experience with a fantastic atmosphere is the “Granitweihnacht” in Hauzenberg, a Christmas market that takes place every year in the Advent season on the site of the “Steinwelten” (worlds of stone) in the old quarry.
+++ Due to the corona pandemic, the granite Christmas also for 2021 has unfortunately been canceled. +++
Since 2006, the Steinwelten in the “Granitzentrum Bayrischer Wald” in Hauzenberg have opened their doors. The visitors are fascinated by the monumental architecture, the exciting productions and the informative exhibitions. The old quarry with a romantic lake form the grandiose backdrop for a unique architecture.
The Christmas market, the Granitweihnacht in Hauzenberg, offers by the old quarry, the exhibition installations and the romantic lake not only a very special atmosphere, but is also a place where exceptional gifts can be found. Presentation and demonstration of traditional craft techniques make the visit exciting. For the physical well-being numerous culinary specialties from the three-country region are offered. The atmospheric illumination completes the experience for young and old and makes it one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in the region.
On offer are arts and crafts from the Bavarian Forest, the Mühlviertel and South Bohemia, as well as special gifts made of stone, wood, glass, linen, wool, straw and wax.
Tickets € 3, children up to 14 years have free admission
The Christkindlmarkt of the Granite Christmas is open for you Thursday to Sunday on all Advent weekends (beginning on 28th of November 2019) from 14:00 to 20:00.
