Fredericksburg during Weihnachtszeit or the Christmas season has often been compared to a holiday Hallmark movie and with good reason.
Whether it’s ice skating and marveling at the town’s 30-foot Christmas tree and authentic German Christmas pyramid, shopping along a Main Street decked out in its holiday finest, enjoying a festive wine event and local cuisine, or experiencing one of the many special events, Fredericksburg is the perfect holiday getaway.
Fredericksburg is a magical place for the holidays, highlighted by Fredericksburg’s Christmas Nights of Lights, which will take place each evening at Marktplatz at 6 p.m., starting on Tuesday, Nov. 23 and running through Thursday, Jan. 6. Experience a 10-minute audio presentation, featuring the story of the town’s German heritage, holiday carols and concluding with a countdown to the lighting of Marktplatz.
