For children

Kids take note! In the Winter Fairytale of “Heinzels Wintermärchen”, there is lots to experience and explore.

Have you already spotted the many hidden Elves, watching the Christmas goings-on from their hiding places? Along with the horse carousel from the 19th century and the big wheel for children made in 1920, Toys Alley will be one of the biggest draws for children at the Cologne Christmas market. Here, the wish list will soon be filled with things that are almost nowhere to be found in modern department stores.

Another big hit is the Christmas Post Office. Here, not only are the special Heinzel postage stamps available, but children also have the opportunity to send their wish list direct to the Christmas Angel or Father Christmas. The special thing is that every child will definitely receive an answer by Christmas - no matter whether the letter has been posted to Engelskirchen or Himmelspforten...

And here’s another tip for youngsters visiting the Winter Fairytale: The Heinzelmännchen have created a special Children’s Day. Every Monday, kids can look forward to a special programme and reduced admission prices for the Ice Rink.
