The legendary Christmas Market Olomouc
 

Join us to feel true Christmas atmosphere in Olomouc, one of most beautiful town in Czech republic. The market's helt in romantic heart of city, on squares with baroque fountains and plague columns (UNESCO Holly Trinity).

 

You can enjoy different types of punch, mulled wine, and other hot drinks at every Christmas market, but hardly so many as you will find in Olomouc, where punch and Nuremberg wine have become a Christmas favorite.

Whoever comes to the Olomouc Christmas markets and in particular to “punch town” on the Upper Square can enjoy wine and punch with various spices, sweet and bitter, improved with rum, cherry brandy or orange.

The Christmas markets are naturally accompanied by a colorful program. Popular bands of all genres will be performing, as will a theater for children and adults, and Advent traditions and contemporary attractions will be on display, not to mention a carved nativity scene, viewing platform or Christkind Post Office.

Information for visitors

How do I get to the markets?

By train or bus - or are you coming from far away?

If you arrive by train at the main station in Olomouc, you can then take a 2 km long walk to the locations of the Christmas markets or change to public transport, see below. 
In the case of traveling by bus, you will either start your journey at the main bus station and therefore continue with e.g. tram line No. 4, which will take you to Hrdinů square, or if the bus line allows it, you will get off directly at the Tržnice stop (old bus station) .

 

Public transport
For public transport, it is closest to the Tržnice stops (tram no. 1, 5, 3, 7) or Hrdinů Square (lines no. 16, 18, 4, 5, 7) and from there continue on foot to the square.

 

By car
For parking, it is best to use the parking spaces in the vicinity of Svobody, or Tržnice. The nearest parking garage can be found at Koželužská Street 934/29. You can also park inOC Šantovka in the city center.

 

Toilets (for a fee)

  • Upper square – wood-panelled containers, women's and men's toilets

  • Pavelčákova Street – a public toilet located where the street meets Horní náměstí 

  • Restaurants on Horní and Dolní náměstí (Upper and Lower Square)

  • ToiToi at Tržnice

Souvenir from the markets

At every stand with hot drinks, you can buy a traditional ceramic mug with a Christmas Olomouc motif.

Route of the Christmas Markets

Horní náměstí → Dolní náměstí → Tržnice → 750 m

The dominant feature of Horní náměstí (Upper Square) is the Holy Trinity Column, a UNESCO monument, overshadowed during Christmas by a 15-meter-tall Christmas tree, the name of which is chosen annually by Olomouc school children. 
You will have a magic view of the entire Horní náměstí from the newly built wooden lookout platform made of two shipping containers. The view of the Christmas-lit square is definitely worth it!
And while you are enjoying a hot punch or some titbits, your children can take a historic carousel ride or visit the bell tower. An accompanying cultural program also takes place on Horní náměstí.
On Horní náměstí you will find our wooden village of 110 stalls where you can buy Christmas decorations and gifts, handicrafts, Advent candles and wreaths.
When crossing to Dolní náměstí, you mustn't miss the Christkind's workshop with the post office – this glass house is the place where children's imagination comes to life. Here, children write letters to Santa Claus, make candles or boats out of walnut shells.


Dolní náměstí (Lower Square) hosts an improvised “tiny square” with twenty wooden huts mainly with artisan home-made products. Don't worry, we wouldn't let you freeze here either – there are stalls with the famous punch here as well. While walking around the square, you shouldn’t miss the nativity scene consisting of carved wooden life size statues.


Our walk ends at Tržnice where you can enjoy the beauty of Christmas Olomouc from the fifteen-meter-tall Olomouc Christmas Wheel. The Christmas decorated market hosts fifteen stalls mainly with craft items – ceramics, Christmas decorations, Advent wreaths, homemade products. After the walk, you would surely like to relax with a drop of something good to eat or drink in the Christmas tent.
