Savour the unique atmosphere of this metropolis on the Rhine at the most special time of year. From late November until late December, you’re sure to be enchanted as you visit the numerous Christmas markets throughout the city.
While the larger markets are held in downtown Cologne, many smaller markets have just as much to offer. The gay and lesbian themed Christmas Avenue market between Rudolfplatz and Schaafenstrasse offers a vibrant party atmosphere and a diverse program of live events. Soak up the maritime ambience at the Harbour Christmas Market next to the Chocolate Museum. Or if you prefer a more laid back setting, browse the Christmas market in the Stadtgarten for unusual handicrafts and products.
