Bonn Christmas Market covers a lot of ground, to many of the historic buildings are not visible because of so many stalls. You can tell which are the best food stalls as they are long lines of people waiting to get served, likewise with the alcohol stalls we were lucky and got a seat in a good one. The market... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Bonn Christmas Market basing ourselves at the Hilton Bonn which was within easy walking distance. The market has a great atmosphere and the local people were friendly. We took time to visit the cathedral and light a candle. The markets are a bit pricey but then you expect that. We bought several gifts/momentos... More

Visited November 2010 and 2010. Loved it. Great to walk around and take in an authentic market. Stop off for a wurst or curry wurst, very yummy!

Bonn has an excellent Christmas market that winds through the streets. The main part is set against the backdrop of the huge Dom (Cathedral). The town hall is a beautiful building and some of the markets produce is hand made on the market. There is also a skating rink. Well worth the trip.

Its one of the better christmas markets with a nice atmosphere, but you have to unforuntately look after your wallet and should check the weather report before going there. There are not that many spot that you can use as an escape of snow and rain.

This was out first experience of German Christmas market and we truly loved it. Not only was it beautifully done up and the lights and the shops, the experience of being there with so many people turning up was very unique and worth exploring. Will definitely come back once again in following years

The Bonn market is special for us as it has the 'usual' German Xmas market attractions in a friendly, attractive, compact city with historical sites and shopping opportunities in walking distance and with a car available, some fabulous countryside and Rhine views on the doorstep.

I spent a couple of days visiting the market. It is a very short walk from the rail station, and well worth going. There is plenty of good food from the vendors, and lots of gluhwein - different vendors have different types - all good. There is a really good variety of stalls, and lots of shopping.

Nice town centre and festive markets. Loved the decorations like a giant table top windmill. Comes alive at night.
