When will you be coming? On the first weekend in December there is a Christmas market in Simmern, on the second weekend in Kastellaun. But why would you even stay in Lautzenhausen?

Lautzenhausen is the closest village to the terminal of Hahn Airport. Allegedly the USAF only named this airport after Hahn (a part of the airport is also on the area of the village Hahn) as it was easier to pronounce than Lautzenhausen. Apart from being close to the airport there is really no other reason to stay in Lautzenhausen (or Hahn).

Hahn airport is basically in the middle of nowhere, even the scenery in the immediate vicinity is, unusually for the Hunsruck, unattractive. I might have suggested that you spend the day plane spotting but, in the current climate, even that is unadvisable.

Trier is a good destination for the Saturday however, even though the weather forecast isn't good, and there could well be snow on the Hunsruck (but unlikely in Trier itself where rain is more likely).

I like Hahn as from arriving to be on the plane will take 15 minutes as nobody is ever there. But otherwise there is no point being there besides taking a flight .

You could do on Sunday a Christmas Market loop

Hahn Airport - Bullay - Traben-Trarbach - Bernkastel-Kues - Wittlich - Bullay - Hahn Airport

bus 750 Hahn Airport - Bullay

Traben-Trarbach Wine Christmas Market

http://www.mosel-wein-nachts-markt.de

Shuttle Bus Traben-Trarbach to Bernkastel-Kues Christmas Markets

weihnachtsmarkt-bernkastel-kues.de/informati…

Bernkastel-Kues Christmas Market

weihnachtsmarkt-bernkastel-kues.de/impressio…

The main bus stop of Bernkastel-Kues is "Kues Forum".

The complete trip is covered by a Rheinland-Pfalz Ticket (EUR 24,00) apart from the shuttle bus Traben-Trabarch to Bernkastel-Kues (EUR 2,00).

The connections where I've not linked a timetable can be queried using the DB timetable.

Cochem looks great. Hope to travel there on the Sunday. Is this accessible by bus. Thx. Staying in hahn is just convenient for me. Last time I travelled after landing in hahn it took another 2.5 hrs to get to my hotel in Frankfurt. Just as easy to have a few beers in hahn on night of arrival. Its the last weekend in December I'm traveling. T hx to all for replies

Last weekend in December? The Christmas market in Cochem ends 17 Dec, the town will be pretty dead on nye weekend. The market in Trier ends 22 Dec but the city should still be lively on Saturday.
