Christmas markets

Handicrafts in a historical setting

What is lovelier than treating yourself to mulled wine and toasted almonds during advent, and wandering through small, prettily decorated wooden huts?

If you also have a castle or old town walls as a backdrop, the idyllic scene is perfect. There are several Christmas markets in the Eifel region which are held within old town walls or in a castle courtyard.

The “Manderscheider Burgweihnacht” at Manderscheid castle, Burg Satzvey castle, the advent market at the Genovaburg castle in Mayen, Monschau, Mörz, Dudeldorf, Bad Münstereifel, Kronenburg and Burg Reifferscheid castle not only have festively decorated huts to offer, but also a castle setting, a medieval town centre and half-timbered houses with a very special atmosphere.

Visitors can enjoy many culinary delicacies or find a few Christmas presents. Admire the fine quality handicrafts and much more at the Christmas markets in the Eifel region.
