- Cologne – the magnificent city of Cologne hosts 6 Christmas markets in total. Amongst them are 4 big Christmas markets – at the Cologne Cathedral on the Alter Markt, on the Neumarkt and on the Rudolfplatz. The market at the Cologne Cathedral is the most impressive due to its impressive backdrop.
- Rudesheim – a traditional market held in the Rhineside resort of Rudesheim. Enjoy the lively celebrations and perhaps visit the Drosselgasse – a street almost completely filled with friendly restaurants and wine taverns.
- Bonn – the Christmas market bathes the city in a magical atmosphere against the backdrop of the illuminated façade of the 900 year old basilica
