Cologne + Christmas Market 04/12/2021

Every year, the city centre of Cologne is touched by the magic of the festivities in the run-up to Christmas. When the Christmas markets in Cologne open their gates on the last Monday before Advent, millions of visitors from around the world delight at the goods on sale at the quaintly designed huts (or "Buden").

Christmas music, arts and crafts, toys, Christmas decorations and the scent of the Christmas bakeries create a wonderful atmosphere. It is not just children's eyes that light up when pewter pourers, wreath binders and glassblowers demonstrate their art, and the aroma of mulled wine, hot chestnuts and gingerbread fills the air.

Cologne is a feeling. Anyone who has ever visited and lived in this attractive cathedral city never wants to leave again. It is this unique feeling, the result of a cheerful way of life, an atmospheric city experience and Mediterranean flair, that captivates everyone who experiences it and brings on homesickness in forced absentees.

The Cologne Cathedral

Here goes the song: a thousand times sung about, a million times visited. As the landmark of Cologne the Cathedral enjoys worldwide fame. More than six million visitors come to see it every year and for good reason because this masterpiece of Gothic architecture, built between 1248 and 1880, is a real must-see.The magnificent Cologne Cathedral hovers above the roofs and chimneys of the city. It is not only used as a point of orientation but is the pride of the people in Cologne. It can be seen from nearly every point in the city centre and from many places elsewhere.

Shopping Streets

Cologne is one of the most popular places to go shopping. There are said to be people who come to Cologne especially for a big shopping spree. The Schildergasse and the Hohe Strasse remain the two most popular shopping streets. Those with a penchant for trendy shops should make a detour to the Ehrenstrasse nearby. The Mittelstrasse is the place to go to find the swanky shops selling luxury labels.

Whatever your Shopping-heart is coveting: You are sure to find it in Cologne!

Kölsch beer

Beer, language, lifestyle. Not just during the Carnival season, but all year round Cologne’s inhabitants charm all the outsiders with their talent for taking it easy. Being of a cheerful Rhenish nature the people of Cologne holding a Kölsch, a light, top-fermented beer, are more likely to be seen in one of the numerous brewery taverns all around the Altstadt than to be seen grumbling. Visitors from outside of Cologne, “Immis”, will receive a warm welcome here even during the year’s other four seasons. Cologne’s inhabitants are tolerant all year round: “live and let live” is the motto. The Kölsch beer is a specially beer only brewed in Cologne. It's light and served in the traditional 0.2 litre Kölsch glasses which are tall and cylindrical.

The twelve Romanic churches are amongst the cultural highlights of Cologne, alongside the Cathedral and the museums. The guided tours of the Romanic churches are a major attraction for visitors throughout the year
