Christmas markets in Rhineland-Palatinate

The magic of Advent and mulled wine straight from the winemakers

Let yourself be enchanted by the tasty treats, the festive glittering lights, the friendly atmosphere and the cultural highlights. It’s Christmastime in Rhineland-Palatinate! Jack Frost’s icy fingers touching the little windows of the half-timbered houses, ice floes starting to float down the Rhine and the Moselle, and the smell of cinnamon and mulled wine wafting through the streets all add up to the perfect Christmas holiday.

Christmas markets against stunning backdrops offer tempting treats and traditional and extraordinary crafts. Cities, castles and palaces put on their festive finery of lights and decorations, creating a cosy warmth that is perfect for strolling or just soaking up the atmosphere. There are concerts and plays geared towards this season of reflection, feel-good spa breaks to pamper the body and soul and even something for the more active holidaymaker, from tobogganing and skiing to winter hiking and all sorts of other opportunities to discover dreamlike winter landscapes.

Please note that events in Rhineland-Palatinate are subject to restrictions due to the spread of the coronavirus and the associated ban on large events. Some of the restrictions are still in place, smaller events may take place under certain conditions. Please note that further restrictions can be expected at short notice. Please contact the organizer directly to find out whether the respective event will take place as planned or under which restrictions/conditions it might take place. Thank you.
