The missus and I have booked a few days just prior to chrimbo in the Altstadt in Cologne.
Any Porsche related stuff nearby just in case, we need a break from the Gluhwein, Eierlikor, Pfannkuchen and Brattie stands?

Stuart the best wein-nachts markt in Germany is by far the one in Traben-Trarbach. Well worth the 1.5hr drive south from Koln Wink

All underground in the wine cellars throughout the town in the warm:

iirc Dusseldorf is only about 45 minutes from Cologne.

This place is well worth a couple of hours visit. Free entry too. Smile

Classic Remise is well worth a visit and the Dusseldorf Christmas market is also pretty good in the Altstadt, Cologne is supposed to be one of the best though.

Not sure if this will work but here is a little video regarding what I mentioned above:

In terms of Porsche you have Manthey Racing at the NBR who always have some tasty offerings on view. As Terry mentioned Classic Remise is in Düsseldorf. There is also an aircraft museum close by but I can't remember off hand where exactly it was, I'll get back to you

Well thanks for your recommendations, we got to Classic Remise in Dusseldorf.
Visited four Christmas markets in Cologne and managed a day trip to visit friends staying at the Heidelberg Marriott on the banks of the River Neckar.

Had a brilliant time! thumbsup
