Join Go Wightaway and experience three famous German Christmas markets in one special break with the added benefit of staying in a superb family run hotel in Altenahr, in the Ahr Valley with dramatic ruins, idyllic castles & picturesque terraced vineyards.
We will be staying at the Zum Weissen Kreuz Hotel where all guest rooms are equipped with shower or bath / WC, satellite TV, some having balcony. All rooms are accessible by a lift.
With almost endless stalls over 6 separate markets, thousands of bargains and a majestic setting, Cologne’s Markets remain the highlight of the season. The markets are scattered across the city in many wonderful locations, especially those set against the backdrop of the Cathedral & the Alter Markt.
On Sunday we take you to Konigswinter, just south of Bonn, and the Schloss Drachenburg, Dragon Mountain Castle. There is a tram ride up the mountain included to the castle, open especially for ‘Einzigartige Weihnachtszei’ – translated as a unique Christmas Experience, with a Christmas Market set up within the castle walls, this is a truly amazing backdrop. Entrance to the castle is included. Afterwards there is an afternoon in the Ahrweiler Market before returning to the hotel for dinner.
