Cologne at Christmas


Cologne at Christmas is like something from a fairy tale. The magic of the festive season is felt throughout the largest of Germany's cities - with traditional music and 160 stands full of festive wares, it makes for an unforgettable experience. According to Cologne legend, ‘Heinzelmännchen’ gnomes guard each market in the city, including the Angel's Market, ensuring that every item sold across each stall is authentic - so any gifts you do pick up will be truly unique. Breathe in the warming scent of cinnamon at one of the many themed Christmas markets in downtown Cologne, and be sure to stop by the spectacular Cathedral or the Chocolate Museum.
