Christmas market Monschau
Dec 2, 2023 - Dec 23, 2023
Christmas for romantics
The enchanting Christmas market in the Eifel town of Monschau offers many highlights. In the midst of the historic old town, you can immerse yourself in a fairytale Christmas world. The romantic half-timbered backdrop guarantees pure Christmas anticipation! Advent concerts by the music societies also contribute to the fabulous Christmas atmosphere. Particularly recommended are the festive chorales of the tower winders on the market square, which take place on Saturdays and Sundays.
Twinkling Christmas trees, floating "starry skies" in all the streets and decorated wooden stalls with attractive offers invite you to go Christmas shopping. From handmade goods to unusual gifts or decorations, there are attractive goods not only in the wooden stalls, but also in the many shops and boutiques. And of course you should try a Glühwein or eggnog. For the little ones, an elf trail leads through the middle of town and there is a historic carousel at the market. Incidentally, St. Nicholas stops by every Saturday to hand out small gifts.
The "Monsch Angels" on Gerberplatz, the nativity scene exhibition in the market hall and, from 1 Advent, the illuminated Advent calendar at Haus Troistorff are definitely worth a visit.
Indulge yourself on booked gourmet tours and Glühwine walks. Try the tour tips for romantic walks and hikes on secluded paths.
