If you're in Bonn in december,I think a visit to this Christmas market is a must do thing.Scores of stalls,selling traditional food,mulled wine or other kind of hot drinks,all kind of sweets,handmade jewels or toys,other kinds of handicraft articles.A ferris wheel for children(and not only for them...).Very nice atmosphere but very crowded in the evenings.

we visited on a special Christmas market river cruise during the week before Christmas. This market was a little disappointing in its size and the fact that it was spread out a little so in places lacked a bit of atmosphere. There were the usual stalls but nothing that I could find that was unique. Worth visiting on a tour... More

There are 6 Christmas Markets and all a little different. The food and drink is amazing and reasonably priced, good to taste different dishes. The stall offer some high quality gifts , no pressure from the stall holders either, they are happy for you to browse without pressuring you to buy. The lights and huts are beautiful, the best I've... More

We spent three nights here and visited most of the markets. Food isn't the cheapest but then its unique. Lovely lighting and atmosphere. The stalls are very pretty and the keepers smile a lot. Ask them questions.....especially the glass blowers...interesting.

We decided to visit Bonn by train from Aachen where we were staying for the Christmas market. It was an excellent choice. The market is less than 5 minutes from the train station. There were a large number of huts to look round, most of which had local handmade, high quality products for sale. There were numerous food stalls to... More

We live in Cologne, but decided to make the trip out to Bonn to see another Christmas market. We both loved it! It is large enough that you have countless different booths to visit, plenty of different foods to eat, and many different kinds of mulled wine to drink (or hot chocolate, if you don't drink wine). The decorations are... More

This Christmas market is a good size for me, not too big and not too small, plenty of nice crafts and Christmas novelties to buy, and at the same time, those singing elks and moose on the roof of some booths are always funny and bring smiles to people's faces.. Enjoy some local holiday snacks when you are here! My... More

unasumingly, the lights guided me from Satdthaus Parkade in Bonn to Christmasmarket Wonderland. Really! thanks to the planning of the responsible committee, less Gluewein huts were in attendance , but some more really nice Christmas huts with beautifully handcrafted wares were out in full force. ..and they ike to talk , and of course to sell, but chatting is essential....
