The Rüdesheim Christmas Market is one we go back to every year. It takes place in the heart of Rüdesheim am Rhein (on the Rhine), a quaint, wine producing German town that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to the Rhüdesheim Christmas Market allows for many shopping opportunities from both the quaint little shops sprinkled throughout the town and from the many market vendors that line the entrance to the town. Market goers can choose between the Rüdesheimer Coffee experience (the coffee is served with liquor and then set ablaze!) or the traditional Glühwein served in a ceramic cup featuring a new design each year. This market is always fun–never too crowded and just a few kilometers away from our home!
