Cologne christmas market

Nearly all German cities have these markets and Cologne is no exception. From mid-November until January, a large flea market takes place in the main square (in this case next to the famous cathedral), where adults and children have fun and spend many hours. First, is a spot of shopping, where one can find accessories for women from necklaces, earrings and bracelets to candles and original decorative gifts, even cookie cutters. It is the perfect place to buy traditional gifts. Moreover, the market also opened as a meeting and entertainment space. It is amazing how, despite the cold temperatures, the inhabitants of Cologne come out every night to the Christmas market to meet friends etc. It is very common to eat sausages or pancakes in the cold weather. However, what is consumed the most is a kind of hot wine, I suppose to forget the cold... it is usually served in a steaming cup which represents Christmas and new ones are made every year. I guess that some people's kitchen cabinets are filled with these souvenir cups ...

How can you miss the christmas market...

How can you miss the Christmas markets in Germany in December? Cologne respects tradition, with a multitude of small Christmas markets scattered throughout the city. The largest is probably the one that is near the cathedral in the heart of the city. Any part of the Christmas market is devoted to specialties, and you can treat yourself pretzel, mulled wine and other typical delicacies. The craft is also an important place, and handmade items from all over Europe are scrambling in small shops.

Comment passer à côté des marchés de Noël en Allemagne au mois de décembre ?! Cologne respecte la tradition, avec une multitude de petits marchés de Noël parsemés dans la ville. Le plus grand est sans doute celui qui se trouve aux abords de la cathédrale, au cœur de la ville. Toute une partie du marché de Noël est consacrée aux spécialités culinaires, et vous pourrez vous régaler de bretzel, vin chaud et autres gourmandises typiques. L’artisanat tient une place également importante, et les objets faits mains venus de toute l’Europe se bousculent dans les petites échoppes.
