Our arts and crafts market is a popular event with lovers of high-quality artisanal products. Visitors enjoy browsing the stands of over 120 artists and craftspeople, admiring and buying their products. The range on offer is as diverse as the museum itself - adults' and children's clothing, eye-catching jewellery, dolls and teddies or wood and leather items. There's something for everyone. Our markets are all about quality. Every exhibitor is a craftsperson who presents and sells unique products which they have made themselves.
On the first and third Advent weekends before Christmas around 220 artists and craftspeople from all over Germany come to Kiekeberg to sell their products - always from Friday to Sunday. Every exhibitor specialises in a different craft, so there truly is something for everyone. All of the products on offer are made by the exhibitors themselves, sometimes with the help of family members if the business is small.
It goes without saying that the market includes a wide range of Easter decorations. As well as eggs - painted, perforated or carved; made from wood, glass and ceramics - there are lots of Easter-themed home décor products. Garden lovers are also sure to find something they love from among the exceptionally diverse offering of plant labels, figurines and ceramic products. Many of the stallholders have been coming to the market for many years, but every year we also welcome a large number of ‘newbies’, ensuring that regular visitors will also find something new to enjoy.
Moisburg Mill Museum begins the season with its traditional arts and crafts market. Sellers are only allowed to have a stall if everything on show at the market has been hand-made by them. In total there are around 50 stalls in and around the mill and the historic Amtshaus building. The lively market is accompanied by music and culinary delicacies; a delicious gateaux buffet in the historic Amtshaus building and our mill café's range of traditional dishes.
