by mbogda

The programme of the Wroclaw Christmas Market in 2022 hasn’t been announced yet, but we already know some details.

Wroclaw Christmas Market 2022 will start on the 18th of November and last until the end of December, with a two-day break on the 24-25th of December. Compared to other Christmas Markets in Poland, this one stands out as one of the most extensive, covering a large part of Wroclaw Old Town.

It’ll be located in four areas: Main Square, Swidnicka Street, Olawska Street and Salt Square (Plac Solny)

Swidnicka Street as the street leading from Wroclaw Train Station to the Old Town is a natural way to enter Wroclaw Street Market, and this is where the entrance gate is located.

What to expect at Wroclaw Christmas Market 2022

Wroclaw is the city of dwarfs, but it gets even more fabulous during the Christmas Fair. A large part of the Old Town (the Main Square, Swidnicka Street, Olawska Street and Solny Market turn into fairy-tale scenery. It gets full of Christmas trees, lights and the aroma of food and mulled wine.

Each year mulled wine at Wroclaw Christmas Market is served in different cups. You may return the cap and get your deposit back or keep the cup as a souvenir.

During the Christmas Fair, you’ll have the opportunity to taste local, Polish and foreign cuisine. There will be also lots of stalls with souvenirs, art, craft, cosmetics and Christmas decorations. Through the entrance gate in Swidnicka Street you will get in the Christmas mood and in the stalls area.

This year, due to the increasing crisis, Christmas Market in Wroclaw will be purely a trading event – there will be no concerts or other artistic events. But this does not discourage citizens and tourists from coming to the market area, and it gets really crowded, especially during weekends.

31st of December will be the last day of the market, with all the stalls closing at 17. Then, the New Year celebration will start in the Main Square.
