An ambience of Christmases past emerges as we indulge in a magical medley of nostalgic markets. First up is rumbustious Rudesheim where the picture postcard old quarter is the evocative setting for the town’s Christmas spectacular. Here, over a hundred stalls showcase traditions and tastes from around the world – don’t miss the local coffee, deliciously laced with brandy and topped with whipped cream. Heidelberg’s yuletide fair extends over five historic squares and features wooden huts, beautiful decorations and an enchanting ice rink beneath the fairytale castle. The festive extravaganza in Koblenz sees the baroque town hall turned into a huge advent calendar whilst the decorated stalls are watched over by the famous “Schangel” boy fountain. Staying at the popular Lamm Hotel, located overlooking the Rhine in the pretty hamlet of Assmannshausen.
Situated on the promenade overlooking the Rhine, the traditional three star family run Lamm Hotel has a pleasant street café where you can relax with a drink and watch the activity on the river.
