The Christmas market in Bernkastel-Kues invites you to stroll, enjoy and buy gifts every day. The more than 40 festively decorated Christmas stalls in the old town offer traditional handicrafts, jewelry, nostalgic bric-a-brac and much more. The gastronomic offer leaves nothing to be desired - as does the varied supporting program with Christmas live music and the "largest Advent calendar in the region".
Every day, a little door opens on the historic half-timbered house of the Adler pharmacy, complemented by an artistic performance. One of the main annual attractions is the torchlight swim, in which 100 sports divers with burning torches accompany St. Nicholas in his rowboat from Kues to the banks of the Moselle in Bernkastel, where he distributes chocolate Santas to children. The magnificent Christmas fireworks display, during which the sky above Bernkastel-Kues is transformed into a pyrotechnical masterpiece, is also likely to be a visitor magnet. In addition, entertaining city tours, cozy Moselle tours with mulled wine and the Santa Claus walk around the old town are on the program.
