After the compulsory Corona break, a Christmas market in Bruck starts again on Friday.

The anticipation is great.

Because of the price increases, some stand operators are also pensive.

But there is good news for visitors.

Fürstenfeldbruck – Around 30 stall operators are busy decorating their stalls for Advent on the Viehmarktplatz until the last minute.

The very last shine is still missing.

But the Christmas tree is already there.

The gem comes from a private garden near the Viscardi High School and was donated by the owner after it had outgrown it.

Advance feedback is great

If you ask the stand operators around, it quickly becomes clear that there shouldn't be any major price increases.

This is also possible because the city has not increased the stand fees.

That's why Manfred Eckl is optimistic about the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle that will last until December 18th.

“The initial response is great.

We have had many inquiries from our regular customers about what's on offer this year."

FFB newsletter.)

In addition to the shepherd's drink, Eckl's specialties include blueberry mulled wine.

The 52-year-old from Munich has been at the Amperstadt Christmas market for 40 years with his family of showmen – known in the summer from the bumper cars at the Brucker Volksfest.

He still remembers the "cozy alley atmosphere" on Pruggmayrstraße in the shadow of the Magdalena Church.

Eckl expects a bigger rush after the two-year break.

"People thirst for their medicine," says the mulled wine specialist.

The expert for apple fritters

Apple cake expert Renate Lingnau works on her price list until the end.

She buys her fruit just before the market opens in Munich's Großmarkthalle.

"Avoid price increases as much as possible" is her motto, even though she had to pay twice as much for the ten-liter buckets of oil she had in storage as she did in 2019. Renate Lingnau also comes from Munich and spends the summer as a showwoman with her shooting range at folk festivals.

Mead and beeswax products

Dirk Westphal and Silvia Decker have a real home game.

They run an increasingly professional hobby beekeeping in the west of Brucker.

At the Christmas market they offer warm mead and beeswax products.

After a summer that was far too dry, their four bee colonies in the Rothschwaiger Forest produced much less honey than usual.

Twelve kilos of honey are available for the nine market days in Brucker.

Dirk Westphal and Silvia Decker are in for a surprise as to whether that's enough to fulfill all of the customers' mead wishes over the three weekends.

One thing is certain: there are plenty of beeswax candles slumbering on the shelves.

Sausage creations

No supply difficulties are to be expected for Robert Stampfl and Michael Büchner.

As always, Bruck's local heroes when it comes to sausage creations expect a densely packed stall area when they offer their delicacies packed in cabbage rolls.

Like their honey neighbors, they run the Christkindl business as a hobby - outside of their regular work, which is why they have to pinch off a few vacation days.

“We used to have time to chat with customers, but now it has become really tiring.

On Christmas Eve we are exhausted.”

The Christmas markets start - the big overview for the Fürstenfeldbruck region

What all stand operators have in common is the wish for the weather: "Slight plus degrees, no wind and a bit of snow" would be perfect.

In bad weather with constant rain, wetness and mud, the market is dead.

But the forecasts of the meteorologists give reason for hope, at least with regard to the temperatures for the opening weekend.
