Pre-Christmas atmosphere at the Christmas markets in Bonn and the region
Gingerbread and mulled wine give off their enticing aromas once again at the Christmas markets in the centre of Bonn and in the region. When it's cold and dark outside, the pre-Christmas stalls transform the squares into small Christmas villages.
The Bonn Christmas market in the city centre sparkles every year with colourful lights and attracts thousands of visitors.
The aroma of mulled wine, baked apples and potato pancakes hangs in the air and many stands entice people to linger and taste what is on offer. There are cribs, handicrafts, ceramic goods, jewellery, articles make of wood, advent accessories, leather goods and textiles as well as bees' wax candles directly from the beekeeper and much more. Handicrafts in particular are well-represented here. With 170 stall holders everyone is bound to find something as a Christmas present. Bonn Christmas market also has plenty to offer on the culinary front: This ranges from freshly smoked salmon, gingerbread hearts, mulled wine to chocolate fruit with something to suit everyone's taste.
Only a few kilometres away from Bonn, on the market dating back to the Middle Ages in Siegburg, visitors can see a completely different Christmas market. In an authentic city of stalls dating back to the Middle Ages, jugglers, players and craftsmen show off their skills.
Anyone who prefers a romantic atmosphere, should definitely visit the market in Ahrweiler. In the heart of the red wine metropolis, which is completely surrounded by a city wall from the Middle Ages, the Christmas market is an inviting place to spend some time.
The Saint Nicholas market takes place in Bad Godesberg every year. After a walk around the market with its many stalls and stands, you can then fortify yourself with traditional food and a glass of mulled wine in a cosy, relaxed atmosphere.
