Historic Bethlehem Holiday Tours


There’s no better place to visit during the holidays than Christmas City in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. On Christmas Eve in 1741, Moravian Count Nicholas Ludwig von Zinzendorf christened Bethlehem and in 1937 it took the name Christmas City.

Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites has created numerous opportunities for you to tour the city.


  • Trees of Historic Bethlehem Pass allows you to walk and gaze at the beautifully decorated trees produced by the Bethlehem Garden Club at the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts, Moravian Museum of Bethlehem, 1810 Goundie House, 1869 Luckenbach Mill, and the Single Sisters’ House. A Pass will also grant you access to the Anniversary Holiday Putz Trail which tells the Nativity Story.
  • A Christmas City Stroll walking tour led by certified, period dressed guides, opens your eyes to the story of every candle in each window of Historic Bethlehem and the famous Bethlehem Star among other historical facts.
  • On a Bethlehem By Night Bus Tour, let a period dressed guide explain all of the historic highlights of Bethlehem in comfort.
  • Let the horse-drawn carriage serve as your guide to the sights and sounds of the town of Bethlehem. These tours book quickly, so be sure to do so early.
  • The Moravian Story Walking Tour leads you through the 1752 Apothecary, the 1758 / 1765 Nain-Schober House, and the 1744 / 1752 Single Sisters’ House.
