Stadt Ellwangen

Woah!!! Halt!

With this horse command we would like to invite you to The Cold Market, the oldest of Ellwangen's festivities and most rich in tradition.

Crisp cold, steaming horses and a chearfully warm atomsphere in the local pubs and traverns characterize this age-old horse market, first recorded in the 14th century.

True to its name it is held during the second week in January.A real feast for the eyes - not only for the horse-fans - is the impressing procession of over 300 horses, riders and carriages, winding its way through the old town.
