Come join The NETWORK and The BRITISH LADIES CLUB for a yuletide visit to the amazing medieval Christmas Market in Bernkastel-Kues, one of the prettiest towns on the Moselle.

The Christmas market in the town is lovingly decorated with 40 little wooden houses and add to the magical atmosphere of this already picturesque town. The many market stalls wind through the old town’s narrow streets from the Marktplatz to Graach Gate.

We will spend the afternoon at leisure to browse, shop and taste the Christmassy delights before coming together with a mug of Glühwein and encourage approximately 100 swimmers for the “Fackelschwimmen” as they plunge into the freezing cold waters of the Moselle, “armed” with a burning torch and swim out to greet St Nicholas. At 5.30pm the beautifully decorated Moselland Giant Advent calendar house in the market square will open to a fanfare of lights and music. We will listen to a recital of the Advent poem and then head back to Luxembourg after a magical day.

Bring your friends, family, colleagues – Everyone is welcome!
