Christmas Markets 2021 in Poznań
Poznań Bethlehem is the name of Poznań Christmas Market, and actually these are several fairs and events that will take place in city squares, markets and parks.
This year's Poznań Bethlehem will take place in several locations. On November 20th, the Christmas market will start at Plac Wolności [mapa]. It will take a bit longer than in previous editions and will last until December 26th. You can expect festive, holiday atmosphere, mulled wine or cocoa, as well as treats, gifts and additional events.
On the second weekend of December, that is December 10-12, 2021, it is worth visiting the Kasprowicz Park [map]. In the vicinity of Arena sport hall, the icon of modernist architecture from Poznań, another edition of the fair will appear, and the International Ice Sculpture Festival will also be held. Artists from around the world will again pick up long, hammers, chainsaws, and even irons to turn blocks of ice into works of art in front of the audience. This part of the event will last until December 19th.
This is still not all, because there will also be an opportunity to feel the atmosphere of Poznań's districts at the turn of the 20th century. The third cosy version of Poznań Bethlehem will appear on the newly renovated Łazarski Market Square (Rynek Łazarski) [map]. It will be there from 4th to 19th December.
Poznań Bethlehem was ranked very high 3 place in the European competition "European Best Christmas Markets 2021", right behind Basel and Budapest.
