Christmas markets

In Advent, Germany reveals its most evocative. Numerous Christmas markets just waiting for your visit. Open your mind to the joy of Christmas and soak in the enchanting world of Christmas markets. Millions of tiny lights sparkle in the twilight, the aroma of mulled wine and roasted almonds fills the air and the flames of the candles dance on traditional Advent wreaths. It's time for Christmas markets!


One of the most beautiful and picturesque Christmas markets in Germany is in Cologne. The whole city is decorated with thousands of colored lights that illuminate the various markets that are scattered throughout the city's most distinctive features, beginning with those held in the Cathedral, the squares on the Alter Markt, Neumarkt, the marketplace of fairy tales on Rudolf, the medieval to the chocolate museum and finally that float on a ship of the shipping company Köln-Düsseldorfer Deutsche Rheinschiffahrt. The numerous stands, the goodies from many countries, the evocative Christmas concerts and shows, the path of cribs and a cruise on the Rhine in the town spreads a joyful atmosphere that infects everyone.


During Advent, a walk along the boulevard "Kö" in Düsseldorf, with its illuminations is an unforgettable experience. Here I expect many small markets, charming and unique character: for example the Market of the Angels, dominated by the Liberty, on the street Heinrich Heine, or stand a little 'retro before the old city hall, where artisans create nativity figurines of wood olive.
