1. Public transport
Anyone who travels to the "Romantic Christmas Market" by public bus or train and therefore does not have their own car will receive high discounts on the admission price!
Instead of 8.00 € during the week and 9.50 € on weekends, admission costs just 5.00 € when you show your current train or bus ticket.
On weekends (Saturday and Sunday), regular buses run from Langerwehe train station to the Merode Christmas market. The shuttle buses commute comfortably every 15 minutes (see timetable). The timetable for journeys from Wednesday to Friday on line 296 can be found here and at www.avv.de.
2. Shuttle bus
In addition, there is again a free bus shuttle from the Dürener Kreisbahn (DKB) for all visitors to the Romantic Christmas Market. On Sundays it is possible to park the car in the Am Parir industrial park (supermarket parking lot Rewe) and take the shuttle bus (stop at Aral petrol station; main street) for three minutes to the Christmas market and then back again.
The bus commutes every 15 minutes between the commercial area and Merode Castle.
3. By car or coach
The adjacent car and bus parking spaces are available to visitors free of charge. Please note that these are only available to a limited extent, so there may be waiting times on weekends.
