Festivals, Markets & Events

There is something going on all year round!

In APRIL we have a hearty start in our beer city: There is everything about our delicious Einbecker beer at our festival Hoffest in the Einbecker brewery.

Would you like to feel like in former days? That happens if you come to see the vintage cars days (Oldtimertage) celebrated in our vintage cars city in JULY. This is when you can spot shiny vintage cars from all over Germany at every corner in Einbeck. Fast is the word for the PS.SPEICHER Rallye.

Can you not get enough of listening to music? Einbecker Music Night is just the right event for you. In SEPTEMBER, different types of music can be heard at a lot of places in our town until late at night.

Would you like to know what’s going on during the festival Eulenfest (Owl-festival) in OCTOBER? During three days our town is basically in the state of emergency – in a positive way. With a lot of music dancing and food we celebrate the Eulenfest during these days. This is probably our most popular and largest town festival in all of South-Lower Saxony.

But we have a lot more to offer in Einbeck: Twice per week you can wander around our city centre and have a look around at the weekly market. This is not just about celebrating, but also to buy fruit, vegetables, bread, meat, cheese and other regional delights. With the Einbecker Weihnachtsdorf (Einbeck’s Christmas village), Einbeck is full of atmosphere in advent.

Every Wednesday and Saturday from 08:00 to 13:00 h the weekly market can be found in the historic setting of Einbeck’s Market Square – this market looks back on a long tradition. Here, you can get ALL YEAR ROUND everything that your heart desires: Seasonal delights, regional fruit, vegetables and flowers, meat amongst others from organic keeping, (freshly smoked) fish, honey produced by local beekeepers, freshly roasted coffee, traditionally baked bread and delicious cake, cheese from all over the world, Greek and Mediterranean specialities, self-produced treats and last but not least culinary delights for your physical well-being. What would a visit of the market be like without some sausage, chips or a crêpe?

Einbecker Music Night

Best live music in Einbeck's city centre

SEPTEMBER offers the best live music in our city centre during the festival Einbecker MusicNight. Look forward to classic sounds, blues, alternative rock and pop that sweeps you away. A lot of Einbeck’s gastronomies and further event locations participate in the Einbecker MusicNight and offer a great variety of music entertainment.

Einbecker Eulenfest

On different stages nearly all types of music are presented during the three days of the Einbecker Eulenfest (Einbeck’s Owl Festival). Furthermore, there are more than 200 market stands and rides that the visitors can enjoy. Our twin towns Thiais (France) and Paczków (Poland) also participate in this event on a regular basis.
