by mbogda

Christmas Market in Poznan in 2021 will begin on the 20th of November and will take place in three locations: Plac Wolnosci (Freedom Square), Rynek Lazarski (Lazarski Market Square) and Kasprowicza Park. While at Plac Wolnosci the market will begin on the 20th of November and last until the 26th of December, at the two other locations it’ll be shorter: 4th to 19th December at Rynek Lazarski and 10th to 19th December at Park Kasprowicza.

What may you expect to see at Christmas Market in Poznan

Due to the Covid pandemic, there will be no Christmas Parade this year, but except for that, the Market will not be different to previous years. You may expect plenty of cultural events for adults and children, charity events, local and international food, mulled wine, and of course – Christmas Tree, lights and decoration.

Ice Festival during Christmas Market in Poznan

One of the most notable events accompanying the Christmas Fair in Poznan will be the 15th edition of the Ice Festival, which will take place in Kasprowicza Park on 10-12th of December. Top Ice Sculptors will compete twice: in Speed Ice Carving and in the Main Competition, and their efforts may be observed for free.

Silent Disco

This is a recurring event that will take place at the Plac Wolnosci. This is a unique type of event where participants are equipped with wireless headphones. Each headphone may listen to three channels where three DJs play different music. This allows participants to choose the music they want to dance to. Headphones may be borrowed for free from 5 pm to 9 pm, but the number of headphones is limited, so don’t be late.

What is a historic Cucumber?
It is a type of bus, that used to be produced in Jelcz, small town in Poland. Its name derives from its shape. “Cucumber bus” was a common means of transport in cites of Poland during communist era. Now Poznan has modern trams and buses, but Cucumber bus is still serving the city – as a touristic bus line.
