Countdown Is Progressing

Well, the Christmas countdown has now officially started and that means that the Christmas markets are now underway across Germany.

So now is the time to start doing a bit of Christmas shopping, and while you are at it you may as well have a few glasses of the legendary Glühwein to keep you warm. And if you get a bit peckish, there are always seasonal treats available to accompany the plonk.

There are numerous markets across the region. In the larger towns and cities, they are generally open daily, but in the smaller towns and villages they may only operate for a few days. I myself am not so keen on the larger markets as they tend to be a bit “samey”, whilst the smaller ones  can have bags more Christmas spirit about them and I am not necessarily talking about the bottled kind.

To find a list of markets taking place in the area, click here. Given that the towns along the river are all quite small the events will be easy enough to find – just follow the crowd!

  1. Hi Simon. It appears you can switch to English by using the drop down arrow in the top right hand side of the brochure. This may default you back to the home page but click on “culture & events” and then Christmas Markets.
