A special way to get in the mood for Christmas is to visit the Reichsburg Cochem with its living nativity play on December 09 and 10, 2023. The traditional Christmas story is brought to life in the courtyards of the castle by historically dressed actors and real animals. The symbolic Star of Bethlehem shines behind the thick castle walls as amateur actors re-enact the Christmas story. A shepherd awaits Joseph and Mary together with the guests in the outer castle and leads them on the arduous search for accommodation from inn to inn to find a warm camp for the night. The camp of the shepherds with sheep is visited to warm themselves by the fire. The highlight and final image of this 25-minute tour is the stable in Bethlehem with Joseph, Mary and the Christ Child, as well as the shepherds and animals at the manger. The archangel announces the birth of Jesus to the sound of trumpets. The brightly shining star shows the Magi from the East the right way and they hand over their gifts to the baby Jesus at the manger. The Christmas story impressively described by the shepherd is especially well received by the young visitors. Besides the story and its presentation, the visitors also enjoy the beautiful costumes and the many animals of the farmers and shepherds, who even as extras without text leave an impressive picture. The finale will be a few atmospherically decorated Christmas stalls with sweets and Christmas items, which invite you to linger. Tickets are available from 01.11.2023 exclusively through our online store.
