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

Definitely one of the better christmas markets, however not the greatest and most amazing in Germany. However, definitely worth a visit when in the area.

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

We met some german politicians there and had a chat with them at a glass of Gluehwein. Great local craftmanship products are sold here, a lot of pottery and candlework. Delicious products from local farms. Our children too loved this place!

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
