Twice a year the Schafhof - European Art Forum Upper Bavaria organizes a 2-day artisan market, the Johannismarket on the weekend of St. John's Day and the Advent Market on the second weekend of Advent.

We are pleased to be able to hold the traditional markets again after a two-year pandemic break. With the two new organizers Grit Gewald and Michaela Zehentbauer-Hilmer, an experienced team is taking over to lead the events into the future.

Up to 50 exhibitors show high-quality handicrafts and design in and around the Schafhof. A variety of accompanying programs entertain and encourage the young and old to participate.

We all look forward to the future with excitement and hope that our planning and implementation can inspire our guests and do justice to our exhibitors.
