    Christmas markets

    by linwei66 Written Dec 6, 2004
    cologne christmas market

    The christmas markets in cologne can fill up a day and, in my opinion, quite interesting. There's everything from jewelrey and handy crafts to bratwurst and beer. The prices are pretty affordable too.

    Every year a month before christmas Cologne turns into christmas city...

    Weihnachtsmärkte! = Christmasmarkets.

    Romanic styles from K��lns earliest days

    Weihnachtsmärkte! Go in the weeks before Christmas to Köln (or any other german town) and be warmed by the cosy business in and around the many Christmasmarkets. It is maybe somewhat commercialised, but still you can enjoy hot 'Eiergrog' or puffed Chestnuts. Germans have a very nice Christmas-spirit and walking over their markets you can imagine that 'Weihnachten' at the real dates in December (25th + 26th) is celebrated big.

    Christopher Street Day
    In Cologne is the biggest CSD parade in Germany and it's great. There are also many cars in the parade and I think it's very important that gays and lesbians march for their rights. Also great fun.

    The Carneval

    The Carneval
    You have to see the Cologne Carneval in February. It's so much fun. At 'Rosenmontag' there is a big colorful and funny parade through the city. It begins at 11.11pm. You wear costumes and funny hats and your face is painted. There are also many vehicles in the parade and they throw sweets (Kamele)from it.And you always shout Kölle Alaaf. That's really funny. I love it.
