St. Martin's Week instead of St. Martin's Market

St. Martin's Week also replaces this year the St. Martin's Market, which has to be canceled due to the Corona measures currently in force.

From November 2 to 6, Dornbirn's city center, stores and gastronomy will once again present themselves with special offers and features. Goose and "Riebel", special exhibitions, street artists and exciting promotions in the stores around the city center will once again conjure up a unique atmosphere in the city center. "We are pleased that with the St. Martin's Week it is possible to strengthen regional trade and local gastronomy and still bring some nostalgia to the city," finds City Councillor for City Marketing and Tourism, Dr. Alexander Juen.

In the first week of November, Dornbirn will once again be dressed in nostalgic garb and will invite visitors to stroll, shop, enjoy and linger with unusual offers and activities. Visitors can expect numerous little surprises, "people in old clothes" and nostalgic flair throughout the city center. Martini Week is accompanied by a fabulous ambience and fitting, autumnal decorations.

Over the past 45 years since the St. Martin's Market was first held, various traditions have developed. St. Martin is not only the patron saint of the town parish church, he has been immortalized in various new buildings and facilities in recent years: for example, in the Martinspark Hotel or the Martinsbrunnen nursing home. From the very beginning, the legend of St. Martin was also seen as the motto for the St. Martin's Market. The merchants, the innkeepers, but also more and more associations and institutions donated a part of their income to charitable institutions under the guiding principle of sharing.

With the St. Martin's Week, a good alternative has already been found in 2020, which will hopefully become as much a tradition as the St. Martin's Market.
