Christmas Market Dates
20th November – 23rd December 2016
Welcome to the
Bonn Christmas Market
Bonn is the former capital of Germany and the 19th largest city. Located about 20 kilometres south of Cologne the impressive illuminated façades on Münsterplatz and its neighbouring streets are the festive backdrop for Bonn's Christmas market.
From 1 December the beautiful old town hall is transformed into an enormous Advent calendar, with one more window being lit up each day.
There are Christmas concerts and a daily programme of events to enjoy the Christmas festive season.
Christmas shopping calls for Christmas markets, and Bonn has just the right atmosphere and the right spirit to go with them.
Shop at Münsterplatz, Bottlerplatz Windeckstrasse, Friedensplatz and Vivatsgasse where you'll find everything from ingredients for special recipes to various art and craft items. You'll also find mulled wine, hot mead and chestnuts or you can purchase beeswax candles directly from the bee-keeper.
While you shop in this illuminated environment, classical symphonies play in the background. What's more, there is a 280-square-meter ice rink at Friedensplatz—a huge hit amongst one and all.
