Christmas Markets in the Mosel and Beyond

We are almost at the end of November which means over the coming days the famous German Christmas markets will begin.

For those of us living in or visiting the Mosel valley, the unique combination of the magical market atmosphere coupled with picturesque surroundings really is unbeatable. So, wrap up nice and warm and head off to indulge in a glass or two of the ubiquitous “Glühwein” (warm mulled wine) or “Eierlikor” (eggnog) whilst browsing the multitudes of stalls selling crafts, trinkets, sweets and a whole host of other traditional and not-so-traditional Christmas goods.

Most towns have at least one market, some lasting just for a few days and others for much longer. Larger towns will have several markets, many of which continue into the New Year and beyond. You can find a selection of those that take place in and around the Mosel at
