Christmas is less than two months away! Admittedly, I panicked a bit when I first realized this—there is always so much to do to prepare! But, then I remembered how wonderful Dusseldorf is at Christmas time and all my stress melted away. From the charming Christmas markets to the beautiful candlelight and delicious mulled wine, there truly is an amazing romantic mood during Christmastime in Dusseldorf.
Previously I shared a bit about our fantastic Christmas markets, but there are many other beautiful seasonal attractions around town. The “Wheel Of Vision” is a giant Ferris wheel that provides a birds eye view of Dusseldorf. This is a particularly romantic spot once all of the Christmas markets are open and the holiday lights are strung throughout the city. Add in Christmas music playing in the streets and there is truly something special about sitting back and enjoying this ride.
If you prefer more action – no problem, there is another great attraction around Christmas: The ice rink! Located in the middle of the Christmas market at Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz, a 450 square meter ice rink is erected for the public to enjoy. It never feels more like Christmas than when I take in a few laps while relishing in the aromas of roasted almonds, cinnamon and chocolate being sold by the holiday vendors.
I am looking forward to welcoming you the Breidenbacher Hof, A Capella Hotel this Christmas season. Be sure to ask your Personal Assistant about what other holiday activities the city has to offer—I promise there are lots!
