Christmas Markets in the Rhine and Ahr Valley

So why not experience the genuine German Christmas markets based at the Pinger in Remagen? The Pinger family with the three star Pinger Hotels & Apartments make an ideal base for exploring the Christmas market stalls. End of October/beginning November the “Martini markets” bring you into the first festive mood.

Some of the major cities open the markets a week before the first advent until 23rd December. The metropolitan city of Cologne offers seven different Christmas markets: below the cathedral, at the “Alter Markt”, “Neumarkt”, “Rudolfplatz”, “Schaafenstraße”, “Stadtgarten” and the harbor. In the bigger towns and cities like Bonn, Cologne, Koblenz and Limburg the markets are open every day from 11:00 hours until 20:00 hours or even longer.

The smaller markets in the region have a charm of it own. Especially the medieval towns Ahrweiler and Linz which hold their Christmas markets on the four weekends in the advent are worth a visit, too.

The midnight market in Ahrweiler on the 3rd Saturday of the advent enjoys thousands of visitors. On the Sunday of the second advent the illuminated procession is a high light of the „Lucia Markt” at Rech. In Remagen, Sinzig and Bad Breisig you find on the 2nd advent the longest Christmas market in the Rhine valley. The “Nikolausmarkt” at Remagen offers a medieval binges around the town hall in the old town, festive decorated stalls in the Josef street and a advent markets in the traffic free precinct. A free shuttle bus service links the three towns free of charge. For travelling to the different places we recommend the German railway system by using the affordable mini group tickets.
