We love the German Xmas markets, Cologne being one of our favourites. This time we chose to stay in Bonn. It was a really nice market, but still a little disappointing. Mainly food and drink, very few decorations. Which is quite sad. I bought most of mine in the local department stores. We had done the market on the first... More

The Market have old German charm with street food and beer and lot to buy on road. These days there are many modern stores like Zara and Newyorker selling amazing Christmas collection.

If you're in Bonn during the Christmas season, at least one of the Christmas markets is a must you should visit. There's a decent one in Bonn, but there are others in the neighbouring cities and towns that worth a visit. Don't forget the Glühwine - you can also get a signature Christmas mug every year for only 2 euros.... More

Bonn, was one of many Christmas Markets we visited this past season and our trip was dedicated to this activity through Germany and France. Bonn, was a great experience where you met friendly vendors of crafts and food concessions. Naturally with a bit of cold in the air Gluhwein helps keep you warm. The evening is the best time to...

You'll find this wonderful Christmas Market in the heart of what was once Germany's capital city. The best thing about this market is the atmosphere! It's not as small as some village markets, and not as large as some of the other markets in Germany - it's just right! The people running the stalls are always friendly and, if they're... More

Bonn is the former capital and the 19th largest city of Germany. The city is located about 20 kilometres south of Cologne. The impressive illuminated facades on Münsterplatz and its neighbouring streets are the festive backdrop for Bonn's Christmas market. Every year from December 1st the beautiful old town hall is transformed into an enormous Advent calendar, with one more... More
