There is one thing Germans do right and that is their Christmas Markets. Someone once told me the Germans think they invented Christmas....I think they did! Right now every square inch of the City Center is covered with vendors selling various German items and lots of food and rides for the kids. It is such a site to see, if you are not in the Christmas spirit after visiting it then something is wrong! Which is you probably didn't stop for a hot wine drink and should turn around and do that. I'm looking forward to going at night and take pictures of the lights and all the action.
I try to collect Nativity Scene from everywhere I go if possible so I set my sights out for a nice authentic German one, the following picture is the one I bought and I'm so excited. It is one the the famous German pyramids....you would not believe the choices I had, I have never seen so many beautiful pieces of handcraft gems.
My only complaint about the market is the Santa, oh my that was some Santa. I'm not going to go on and on about him because after all its Santa and who am I to judge BUT......?
