Christmas is fast approaching. Enjoy the seasonal magic of mulled wine, mince pies, good will to all men, and frantic last minute present buying in huge department stores. But it doesn’t have to be like that - all across Europe, Christmas markets are wonderful historic events where you can find traditional gifts and great presents for everyone.

 

This seasonal market makes the perfect Christmas break.

Saturday
On arrival in France, we will continue our journey by coach to Cologne which takes about 5 hours. On arrival in Cologne we will take a walking tour of the city center to see things like the museums and cathedral (roughly 1.5 hours) and visit the world's famous Christmas markets.

The main landmark in the center of the city is the mighty Dom (cathedral). The cathedral was started in 1248 but took over 600 years to complete. Its two towers are 157 meters tall. You can go inside and have a look around and there is no entry charge but to climb the tower and see the cathedral treasures there is a charge of about 4 Euros. The cathedral is famous for containing the remains of the Three Wise Kings who visited Jesus in Bethlehem.

Take your time and discover Cologne's Love Locks Bridge. 40.000 padlocks are now hanging from the railings of the bridge, each inscribed, painted, or otherwise decorated by the couple that hung it. 40,000 padlocks of love. Hang one of with your loved one or for one of your loved ones.
