Cologne Old Town “Home of the elves”

Cologne christmas markets open their gates again at November 26th, 2012. The unique atmosphere of the differently designed markets is attracting many visitors from home and abroad every year. We made a list of the biggest markets, every one is worth visiting:

Christmas market at the Cologne Cathedral

“Against the backdrop of the Gothic Cathedral, you will find a fascinating array of high-quality arts & crafts with many gift ideas, delicious food and drinks as well as more than onehundred stage events under the resplendent starlight tent.”

Cologne Old Town “Home of the elves”

“This rustic and welcoming Christmas market lies in the heart of the Old Town. Traditional artisan stalls, lovingly decorated huts, pretty lanes, and hidden Heinzelmännchen (legendary gnomes who are said to have done the work of the people of Cologne at night) give this market its particular charm.”

Market of Angels – Christmas at Neumarkt

“The magical smiles of angels incarnate and a sea of gleaming stars awaits you in the centrally located Market of Angels between Cologne’s most popular shopping streets. This has to be seen!”

Fairytale Christmas market at Rudolfplatz

“Just a ten minute walk from Neumarkt, the Fairytale Christmas market is situ­ated at Rudolfplatz. The motto of the sixty huts at the Hahnentorburg is the Brother’s Grimm tales. Therefore, this Christmas market delights particularly younger visitors.”

Cologne Harbour Christmas market at the Chocolate Museum

“Special Christmas-Highlight in Cologne. Very comfortable and elegant maritime Christmas market located in picturesque scenery directly at the Rhine offering high-quality products and exciting programme. A must see!”

Christmas market at Stadtgarten

“Dynamically artful, attractively different, ingeniously stylish and yet bound to nature and tradition. We offer you all this at our market in the heart of the Belgium quarter.”
