Rudesheim and Frankfurt Christmas Markets 01, December, 2017
Rudesheim, a town in the Rhine Valley, is unique and exceedingly beautiful. With cobbled streets and quaint shops this atmospheric town will charm you with its hospitable warmth, good food, wine music and fairy-tale splendour. Christmas traditions from all over the world merge at Rüdesheim Christmas Market bringing all manner of festive products to the market in the popular ‘Drosselgasse’ area in the historic city centre.
Day 1: We will make our way through France and Belgium and into Germany arriving at our hotel in Rudesheim in time for dinner.
Day 2: Today will be spent in Rudesheim; there are many Christmas markets in Germany, but the pretty historic town of Rüdesheim has a Christmas market that’s special. Called the Christmas Market of Nations or Rüdesheimer Weihnachtsmarkt der Nationen, there are over 120 stalls at the market, representing the Christmas traditions from 12 nations. At the festively decorated Christmas market stalls you’ll find plenty of handmade artwork and handicrafts and before your very eyes you can even watch candles, decorations, wood figures, wood carvings, glass engravings, “schwibbögen” arched candles, mangers, pewter casters and dolls being made. Then of course, you can try famous and traditional Christmas foods from the region, washed down with the famous Rüdesheim mulled wine. And don’t forget the famous Rüdesheim coffee drink made with locally distilled Asbach Uralt brandy.
Day 3: After breakfast we travel to Frankfurt; Frankfurt Christmas Market is one of the oldest in Germany. Come and enjoy hot Applewine and Bethmännchen almond candies under Germany's tallest Christmas tree! On the Roemerberg, a beautifully decorated fir tree reaches toward the skies. Frankfurt’s historical old town is brightly illuminated by thousands of fairy lights reflecting off the windows of the square’s traditional half-timbered houses. The scent of baked apples, chestnuts, gingerbread and mulled wine fills the air. If you’ve ever wanted to experience the wonderful wintertime charm of the old world, Frankfurt Christmas Market has it all!
Day 4: Sadly we have to say goodbye to beautiful Rudesheim and begin our journey home.
