Good to see you again! We are very pleased about that. You will probably be one of the large number of visitors and interested people, who entered the European arts and crafts market in their diary as a recurring event.
The European market has a long tradition in Aachen. Since 1976, the Aachen Chamber of Crafts always organises this large event in the "Kaiserstadt" in the first weekend of September. At around 300 booths artists, craft designers and master designers throughout Europe present their products. The European market meets with great interest - each year we welcome visitors from all over Europe.
The strict selection of the exhibitors guarantees the quality of the European market, which started as a small meeting place for trends and ideas has developed into the largest event of its kind. Only professional craftsmen and a limited number of freelance artists are permitted. Please come to visit the booths around the cathedral and town hall.
Since 1976, the team of the Aachen Academy of Craft and Design, Gut Rosenberg, organise the European arts and crafts market. The director sets high standards when selecting the exhibitors. 
Its objective is to offer artists and crafts designers a high-quality platform to present their products. At the same time, the European market wants to be an international contact and trend meeting place and wants to help young design talents of crafts when setting up their businesses.
Students and alumni of the Academy of Craft and Design will also present their skills and products in the market and in the Aula Carolina nearby. The offer varies from object of utility to unique object, but also from tradition to experiment.

Kind regards,
Beate Amrehn, Gut Rosenberg, Aachen Chamber of Crafts and Skilled Trades
