The Market

This year, we can say that the Christmas Market is going to achieve successfully the first seven years of good upbringing! 7 years during which the market has developed more and more and has attracted more and more visitors from our country and from abroad.


The Sibiu Christmas Market is a cultural project initiated by the Au-Ro Austria Pro Romania Foundation and the Bureau of the Social Attaché of the Austrian Embassy, in partnership with the Sibiu municipality. Organized for the first time in 2007 when Sibiu was the European Cultural Capital, the Sibiu Christmas Market became famous in Romania due to its magnitude and for establishing a specific tradition.

Santa’s Workshop

For the seventh year in a row, the Sibiu Christmas Market, an outstanding event of the Sibiu cultural life, will open its gates in the center of the city between the 22nd November and 26th December. Apart from the 65 stands, the beautifully decorated Christmas tree and the wooden manger, it has already become a tradition to include in our agenda the Workshops for children.

Last year, more than 2000 children visited the bakery workshop, the gingerbread decorating workshop and the candle making workshop. For the edition of this year, we have taken into consideration a wide range of proposals in order to welcome the desire of the little ones to manifest their artistic, aesthetic and plastic side. Thus, we have proposed as objectives to stimulate some aptitudes and creative skills, by offering them the chance to work in teams in a festive ambiance under the guidance of some professionals.


The workshops are meant for the children aged between 5 and 9 years old. The participants can keep their “work of art” and will be awarded vocational certificates.
The participation fee to such a workshop is 10 lei/child. The payment is made at the “Santa’s Workshop”, placed in the Large Square, inside the Sibiu Christmas Market.
Teachers will be delivered a certificate for taking part in extracurricular activities.

For schools, kindergartens and organized groups: the teachers and children can take part in the workshops from Monday to Friday, between 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., but an online prior reservation should be made by filling up a reservation form. The participation is subject to availability.

For the public: During Saturday and Sunday, the workshops are opened to the public between 12 noon – 8 p.m., without being necessary to make a prior reservation. The entrance in the workshops is done at a specific time.
