This magical holiday presents a tantalising trio of German markets bringing to life the spirit of Christmas. Cologne’s striking cathedral makes a spectacular backdrop for the city’s Christmas market, Dusseldorf is transformed into a winter’s tale whilst Oberhausen’s old town market square is enhanced by a forest of twinkling trimmed trees. Our outstanding base is the well appointed 4-star Mercure Dusseldorf-Kaarst on the outskirts of town.
