Christmas Market in Bernkastel-Kues

Each year since 1978 the Christmas market in the medieval town of Bernkastel-Kues takes place from the end of November until just before Christmas Eve. Over 40 lovingly decorated little wooden houses add an additional, even magical atmosphere to this already picturesque town. The many market stalls wind through the Christmassy old town's narrow streets from the market square to Graach Gate. Every evening you can marvel at the large Moselland Advent calendar in the market square.

Each day from 1st to 24th December, a window of this festively decorated half-timbered house opens and an Advent poem or story is recited. The traditional highlight of the Christmas market is the arrival of the swimmers carrying flaming torches, accompanying Santa Claus through the icy waters of the Mosel to its bank. The Christmas market is open daily except for All Souls Day.
