Christmas Market in Koblenz
For 6 weeks, the Koblenz Old Town is transformed into a wintery sea of Christmas lights. Opening Hours
The Ehrenbreitstein Fortress shows off a special light and sound experience.
Every year during Advent, the Rhine-Moselle city is transformed into an atmospheric pre-Christmas paradise: The scent of freshly roasted almonds, mulled wine and gingerbread wafts through the streets. At the arts and crafts market, numerous stalls with handmade individual items invite visitors to a cozy gift hunt.
You can stroll through the festively decorated city center from one favorite spot to the next. A particularly contemplative sight awaits you on Jesuitenplatz. There you will find the city's largest Advent calendar, composed of the colorfully lit dormer windows of the baroque town hall.
A perfect day in Koblenz naturally includes a detour to the Deutsches Eck. From there, take the cable car up to the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress Cultural Center, where the Christmas light and sound installation "Christmas Garden" is one of the highlights of the Christmas season in Koblenz. The Christmas Garden invites you to a magical journey through Ehrenbreitstein Fortress in the open air. Experience unique light designs with individually composed worlds of sound on a circular path approximately two kilometers long.
