Sounds of tranquillity

Unlike in other Christmas markets, the sounds of tranquillity in Monschau don't issue from recordings.  Every weekend, numerous music societies, ensembles and musicians provide live, authentic music.

Friday is the day of the alpenhorn blowers, whose sounds reverberate throughout entire Monschau.

What is especially impressive is the evening performances of the Monschauer music clubs.  At the market square they send Christmas melodies ringing out over the rooftops of Monschau - captivating moments not easily forgotten.
