Unfortunately, the traditional Koblenz Christmas market cannot take place due to current developments and measures taken by the federal and state governments to contain the Corona pandemic. The Christmas Garden event planned for the first time in the Ehrenbreitstein fortress is also cancelled.
But the heart of Christmas beats faster in Koblenz: with Rhine romanticism and brilliant lights, the city shows its dreamy side.
Festively illuminated Christmas town
Enjoy a relaxed stroll through the cosy alleys of the picturesque old town, let yourself be enchanted by the atmospheric sea of lights of the poinsettias and garlands of light. The atmosphere of the festively decorated streets and squares with numerous decorated Christmas trees will immediately put you in a holiday mood. The beautiful Koblenz town hall offers two attractions during the Advent season: In the illuminated inner courtyard the sight of the large nativity scene, which symbolizes the Christian Christmas story, enchants. And the view up to the roof of the former Jesuit college is also worthwhile: here, a new door of the town hall Advent calendar opens every day in the romantic skylights.
