The historic centre of Neumarkt-Egna also wears its annual Christmas clothing. Far from the hustle and bustle the village with its arcades offers an idyllic and traditional Advent. On Saturdays from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm visitors can admire a living nativity scene. There are also many nativities on display in the various shop windows. Horse-drawn carriage rides through the village, music bands, a stall with hot drinks and stalls offering various foods complete the offer.
