Rüdesheim Christmas Market
Rüdesheim Christmas markets offer relaxing breaks to visitors on holidays to the German Christmas markets.

Discover Christmas traditions from all over the world at the charming Rüdesheim Christmas Market. More than 120 stands from twelve nations offer their special products in the world-famous 'Drosselgasse' area in the historic city centre. This famous street is covered in sparkling lights and decorations during Christmas time and the festivities are popular with wine enthusiasts as the local wine growers open their cellars to offer winter specialities that will be sure to warm you up on those cold winter nights. An absolute must-try treat at the Christmas market is the delicious Rüdesheim Coffee, made exclusively with local Asbach Uralt Brandy, whipped creams and served in an authentic Rüdesheim coffee set.

The Rüdesheim Christmas Market offers an array of cosy restaurants and wine bars, attracting visitors with their typical Rheingau cuisine and seasonal specialities. Be sure to visit Germany's largest nativity scene with its life-sized figures, and enjoy the numerous events, parades and concerts as well as the special festive highlights taking place at weekends. For some stunning views over the Rhine, you can take a cable care up to the Niederwald recreational area. There is also a range of entertainment and activities to choose from, no to be missed is a river cruise to discover the romantic Rhine river. Sailing from Rüdesheim, this trip will teach you about Germany's fairy tales, legends and Christmas traditions, to make for an immersive festive experience.
