Christmas market at Cologne Cathedral


Christmas market
In the middle of Cologne, the Christmas market at Cologne Cathedral (Weihnachtsmarkt am Kölner Dom) awaits its visitors with a huge decorated Christmas tree at the foot of the impressive Cathedral.
From this heart of the Christmas market, a sparkling tent of starlight is spread out above the Roncalliplatz. Every year, countless visitors are invited to stroll and browse through this market, sampling the selected handicrafts and organic culinary delicacies and enjoying a diverse Christmas stage programme featuring more than 100 free events. 

Special tip: Every Tuesday to Thursday, a children's program in the „Sternwarte“ invites the little ones to linger between 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
