Festivals have a long tradition in Esslingen. The season begins in July with the Esslingen "Bürgerfest" (Citizens´ Festival). Here, the entire town centre turns into a huge outdoor party. "Karibische Nächte", the open-air film festival at the Esslingen "Burg" as well as the very popular Onion Festival at the beginning of August are all just the right thing for real festival fans. For sheer size, nothing anywhere can top the Esslingen Medieval Market and Christmas Market in November, one of Germany´s most adventurous Christmas markets.
Every year, many events in Esslingen give plenty of cause for celebration. You will find a selection of them here.
