Christmas Candlelight Tours

2018 dates:

December 6th and 7th, 6pm to 8pm
December 8th, 5pm to 8:30pm

Begin the Christmas season with this Lancaster County tradition. Learn about the art of weaving as done the local Native Americans and the Pennsylvania Germans followed by the reading of the Christmas story in German while sitting in the candlelit stube of the 1719 Herr House.

“Christmas Candlelight Tours are a wonderful time to experience the beauty of the 1719 Hans Herr House while also gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation of our past,” says Joel Nofziger, Director of Communications for the 1719 Hans Herr House & Museum.

Following the tours, participants are invited to linger around the fire for hot chocolate and popcorn. Herr House smoked sausage will be available for purchase.

Participants should dress for the weather and plan to walk throughout the evening, as a large portion of the Herr House property will be covered.
