Siegburg Christmas Market is a woefully underrated Medieval-style market located just outside of Bonn, with a small cluster of vendors in the town’s central market square.
While no doubt small, it’s one of the cutest and most charming Medieval Christmas markets we’ve visited in Germany, and a great side trip if you happen to be in North Rhine-Westphalia visiting the Christmas markets in Bonn or Cologne.
We first visited this Christmas market in December 2019 and loved the energetic vibe and commitment to theme – it definitely felt like a little slice of the Middle Ages, with a fraction of the tourists that you might find at the bigger Christmas markets nearby.
