I was in the Bernkastel-Kues Market by chance at just the right time to see the Advent Calendar program and the turning of the window from a number to a picture. I’ve been trying to find the exact times for the program but so far have only been able to see that it is in the evening. A schedule would be great to see on here if you find one.
