ILLUMINATION AND TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMEN AT CASTLE MERODE
This year again, during the Advent season, Prince Charles-Louis de Merode is opening the gates of his castle for the Romantic Christmas Market. This market, with its traditional hand-crafted items, won first place as the finest Christmas market of NRW in Protected content . Surrounded by picturesque scenery and a natural park, the visitors will be welcomed to an idyllic village composed of lovely, decorated wooden Christmas stalls. Thousands of candles, torches, and lanterns will be illuminating the castle grounds.
Many craftsmen, including wood workers, blacksmiths, candle makers, glass blowers, basket weavers, potters, crib makers, and spoon carvers, will be producing, exhibiting and offering for sale their creations.
The delicious aroma of hot wine and the fragrance of local foods and sweets will be wafting through the winter air. Visitors can also warm up in the castle’s café and enjoy a cup of coffee or a cacao punch with a piece of “Christollen”, a Christmas cake or other baked goodies.
The visitors will have the opportunity to see the Christmas Angel appearing in a tower window, reciting lovely Christmas poems.
