Heavenue – The Gay Christmas Market!
Heavenue is the gay Christmas Market taking place in Cologne each year from late November in the grounds of KölnBonn near Rudolfplatz.
Heavenue is a produced by the same people who bring the “Sexy Cologne” parties to the city. The event is one of the highlights of Christmas in Cologne and features live shows and music every weekend.
Heavenue is open for 4 weeks from Monday to Thursday from 16.00 to 22.00 and on Friday and Saturday from 14.00 to 22.00.
The pedestrian zone around Sparkasse KölnBonn at Rudolfplatz is home to the gay Christmas Market. The plaza between Hahnenstrasse and Schaafenstrasse will be transformed into HEAVENUE – a composite word of “Heaven” and “Avenue”. Colorful market booths in pop art style, decorated with romantic elements and snow-white garlands, characterize the new look of the market. A sophisticated lighting design consisting of LEDs, chains of lights and special effects will transform the square into a colourful, dazzling sea of lights in the evening – which is sure to put a sparkle in the eyes of visitors. Everyone who walks through the heavenly entrance portal will be transported into a Christmas wonderland!
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action,
