Events in winter

In winter, it's Christmas anticipation and light art, when the city begins to shine and sparkle with the Christmas market and Christmas Garden at Festung Ehrenbreitstein! A special highlight in winter is of course the carnival with the popular Shrove Monday parade.

Koblenz Christmas Market
Every year during Advent, Koblenz 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 unique items invite you to a cozy gift hunt.
You can stroll through the festively decorated city center from one favorite spot to the next in complete relaxation. A particularly contemplative sight awaits you at Jesuitenplatz. There you will find the city's largest Advent calendar, composed of the colorfully lit dormer windows of the baroque town hall.

The Christmas Garden Koblenz promises a magical journey through enchanting fantasy worlds and guarantees a wonderful open-air experience for young and old.
