New Year's Market


Christmas market
The maritime Cologne Harbour Christmas market next to the Chocolate Museum on the Rhine, which enchants until 23th December with handicrafts, mulled wine on a real three-master wooden ship and a varied entertainment program including shanties and pirates, will be transformed from 26th December into a cosy New Year's market with warming drinks and culinary delights from the region. The 48m high Ferris wheel will remain standing parallel to the New Year's market until 7th January 2024. A nice destination for a walk along the Rhine after Christmas, at the turn of the year or for a relaxed start in the new year!
