The Mosel region is well known for its beautiful Christmas markets. Two of them we can highly recommend, both are quickly reached from the apartment. The Christmas Market in Traben-Trarbach takes place underground, i.e. there are some huge cellars under the city, former Wine storage, which are used for the Christmas markets. Here the visitor is protected against wind and weather.
The second beautiful Christmas market is held in Bernkastel-Kues. Here it extends partially into the narrow back streets and it acts colorful and a bit chaotic, just not as such in Trier, where all the stalls are exactly aligned and look alike.
