"The Medieval Market" Christmas Markets Tip by christine.j

Christmas Markets, Cologne: 11 reviews and 20 photos


Cologne has six Christmas markets, one of the most interesting is the medieval one at the Chocolate Museum. You have to pay an entrance fee, 2 Euro per adult, children smaller than a sword are free.There's someone standing outside with a sword in his hands and takes measure.
Since Christmas markets usually are free, and especially since there are five others in Cologne, you may be tempted to give this one a miss. But it's really worth spending the entrance fee. A group of actors performs medieval shows, you can buy unusal Christmas gifts and even the food tries to be medieval.

Address: Just outside the Chocolate museum
Directions: Walk down along with the Rhine on your left and you'll get to the museum. The market is in front of it.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
