Christmas Markets

Rüdesheim am Rhein

The Christmas Market of the Nations adds an international dimension to the festive season in Rüdesheim am Rhein. Set in the town's chocolate-box old quarter, it features around 120 stalls with crafts, customs and traditions from twelve countries. In Drosselgasse, for example, the Finnish contingent offer elk furs and jam made from cloudberries, while a Mongolian yurt tent adds an exotic, oriental feel. Europe's largest Nativity scene, with surrounding scenery, conjures up a magical atmosphere in the heart of the old quarter. Varied entertainment runs every day, and you can go on a romantic river cruise or cable car trip. The highpoint comes on 21 December with Christmas traditions on St. Thomas' Night.
