The Christmas market season is upon us, and there have been some suggestions that we try to photograph in several! I suggest the first one might be the Siegburg market, which has a medieval theme. If we are there in the afternoon, we should be able to catch the jugglers, the blue hour, and some of the market by candle light.
Siegburg is about 25 minutes from Cologne HBf on S12 or S19, or the Regional Express to Siegen. It is less than 25 minutes from Bonn HBf on line 66. From there, a 5-minute walk will bring you to the Zeitraum, and a few minutes more to the marketplace.
We can meet at the Zeitraum, where some of my photos will be exhibited that weekend, and then move on to the marketplace where the medieval activities will be taking place. The building is marked 'Diakonie', opposite Zeeman. There will be a 'repair cafe' going on in the space as well, but I think we'll be able to congregate, view the exhibition, and then go out into the cold at the market.

See you then!
