Every year the squares and streets of Cologne are touched by the magic of the festivities in the run-up to Christmas. They are transformed into a fairy-tale full of lights and colors, Christmas music, arts and crafts, toys, Christmas decorations and scents of the Christmas bakeries.
ESN VUB EhB Brussels is glad to invite you to discover all kinds of Christmas delights with more than 150 lovingly decorated huts. 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.
There are in fact different Christmas markets in Cologne’s area but the larger Christmas markets are held in downtown Cologne.
The booths near Cologne Cathedral are arranged around a huge Christmas tree, next to which is a stage for a diverse program of live music performances. But Cologne’s smaller Christmas markets also have plenty to offer. You can look forward to a maritime ambience at the Harbor Christmas Market next to the Chocolate Museum.
Cologne’s Christmas markets attract millions of visitors from all over the world every year and there will be no exceptions for Erasmus students!
You too can savor the unique atmosphere of this metropolis on the Rhine at this special time of year.
