Miesbach - With the stroll through Gasserl from market stalls and the mulled wine in good company at the Christkindlmarkt it will not work again this year because of the fourth Corona wave.
So that the pre-Christmas mood arises, the district town does its utmost: In Advent it is again “Miesbach shines”.
On the market square, next to the large Christmas tree, there is also a small grove of fir trees that will carry Christmas ornaments with other trees, the city reports. A noble fir tree shines at the town hall, the windows are transformed back into the light advent calendar. Every Thursday to Sunday you can discover the city in a new light on an evening tour. Light effects in festive colors and with neat patterns bring light into the darkness in squares, buildings and churches. The Waitzinger Keller cultural center, Waitzinger Park, the Protestant and Catholic churches light up on all weekends until after Christmas, and the town hall, the old hospital, the town square, the market square, the Lebzelter Berg and the women's school light up alternately on the Advent weekends.
"Miesbach lights up" was initiated by the city of Miesbach around Mayor Gerhard Braunmiller, the Catholic Church with Pastoral Advisor Kathrin Baumann and the Protestant Church with Pastor Erwin Sergel.
The shops in Miesbach are open Monday to Friday until 6 p.m. and on the long Saturdays in Advent until 4 p.m.
