German Christmas Markets (Weihnachtsmarkts)

20th December 2011, Comments 0 comments

Nearly every German city and village sets up a Christmas market during the Advent season.

Giving you a reason to brace the cold, visitors can ride a Ferris wheel, browse through the stands selling handicrafts, wooden toys and ceramics, sample the hot mulled wine (glühwein) and warm chestnuts or just absorb the merry atmosphere. These fairs have proved so popular that other countries have started copying the German-Austrian tradition. Notable Christmas markets are in Berlin, Munich, Nuremberg, Lubeck, Munster, Stuttgart and Heidelberg.
