Christmas Market

Brühl Christmas Market

The Brühl Christmas market may not be the largest of the Christmas markets in Germany, but it is still impressive. Treat yourself to an unforgettable festive experience as you soak up the enchanting winter atmosphere of Brühl's Christmas market. Festively decorated stands offer everything from household goods and crafts to Christmas decorations. There is also a variety of culinary delights to sample, with traditional gingerbread, roasted almonds and mulled wine.

The city's festive charm attracts many visitors on nearby Cologne city breaks looking to get away from the busy city streets. The city's artists and musicians also play their part, providing a festive programme with entertainment for both young and old.

The Brühl Christmas market is located near two of Brühl's UNESCO-listed sights - the Augustusburg Palace and the hunting lodge Falkenlust with its baroque gardens. The delightful market offers visitors the chance to sample tasty local delicacies, shop for traditional Christmas gifts and appreciate the town's historic splendour.

Nearby Phantasialand, one of Europe's top theme parks, is also well worth a visit and a favourite with tourists and locals alike.
