The Schwabing Christmas Market
Already in the early 1970’s a number of artists, who were to be found during the summer on the 'Art Mile' in the Leopold Street, began to show their work at the former Swiss House in the run up to Christmas.
In 1975 the idea of an artists' market, with proper stalls and events, was born. With the backing of the local council headed by Mrs. v. Welser-Ude, the Schwabing Chistmas Market was founded.
The concept has been one of an artists' market from the very beginning. An unmistakable flair has been created by the high level of artistic talent and craftsmanship of the circa 100 international artisans. This is further underlined by the quality of the cultural programme and fine foods.
A jury is responsible for chosing the work shown as well as finding new exhibitors. This ensures that all exhibited work comes from the studios and workshops of the artists.
