Day Trip to Cologne’s Christmas Markets

December 10, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 pm


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… 🎄

Yes, you read correctly, its THAT time of the year again, and ESN wants to help you make it even more joyful. ✨

ESN Nijmegen, together with study association Babylon, takes you to beautiful Cologne, Germany.

Come with us, stroll through Cologne’s many Christmas markets, and enjoy the festive atmosphere while warming yourself with steaming mulled wine.♥️

What can you expect?

We organized a bus that will take us from Nijmegen to Cologne in the morning. After arrival, we will start our day in Cologne with visiting the Cologne Triangle that allows you the ravishing experience to see the whole city and its Christmas markets from above. Besides the stunning view, it’s the perfect spot to take photos. Afterwards, you will have free time to explore the festively decorated city on your own and stroll through numerous Christmas markets. You can explore markets with different themes, arts, and crafts from all over Europe, high-quality goods, culinary highlights, and atmospheric entertainment programs. To give you a better overview, we’ll provide you with a list of Cologne’s Christmas markets once you’ve signed up. Enjoy your well-deserved dinner before we meet again in the evening and take the bus back to Nijmegen.
