Christmas magic at Bentheim Castle

Christmas magic at Burg Bentheim from 01 to 23 December 2022

On Thursday, 01 December 2022, the doors will open for the first Christmas market at Burg Bentheim. In the midst of the historic walls, our 25 or so exhibitors will offer their lovingly handmade products and culinary delicacies in decorated wooden huts. The offer ranges from gift and decorative items as well as jewellery and pet accessories to clothing made of alpaca wool and much more. Visitors can let themselves be enchanted by the numerous stalls on the grounds.
be enchanted by the numerous stands. With atmospheric lights and a decorated courtyard, Bentheim Castle is transformed into a unique fairytale setting.

On all days when the Christmas market takes place, visitors can take part in a varied programme. On our torch tour for children, the rooms of the castle can be explored in the dark. The Marstall at Burg Bentheim will be transformed into a "creative workshop". Whether it's painting gingerbread hearts, reading sessions or making music together with the Castle Kids: our youngest visitors are cordially invited to do handicrafts, bake and play. The highlight of the Christmas market is a very special attraction: a nostalgic carousel in the inner courtyard of the castle.
