Germany is famous for their Weihnacht Markets. I love our Christmas Market no matter what time of day or night you go, it's always crowded. It can be 10 am and people are happy enjoying their Gluhwein and Bratwurst, enjoying the season.
We start our tour with the Christmas tree at the Hilton, we went there on Friday evening after doing some Christmas shopping. It was freezing out and one can have only so much Bratwurst! The Hilton's tree was amazing and we were lucky to listen in on a performance of a local choir.
They were singing in English and German, beautiful voices and a nice treat. Note the girl in front has a real candle burning wreath in hair, she was covered in wax by the end. It was hard for me to focus on the music, I wanted to stand by her with a glass of water. One can never be too safe!
Pictures do not do justice how gorgeous this was, there are several side streets in the city lined with Chandeliers. It's an amazing sight!
Lots to do for the whole family, seeing Santa but not sitting on Santa's lap wonder if that is an American custom? Kiddie Rides and yummy sweets and treats!
Shopping of coarse, for authentic German Nutcrackers, Smokers, Pyramids and ornaments galore!
The funniest thing I noticed is large groups of friends young and old all decked out in matching hats, some Santa hats, Christmas tree hats, Antlers, Christmas Cowboy hats but always the group had the same. Usually quite happy and Gluhwein in hand singing away! Nice to see!
I loved seeing this, side by side the display of two religious symbols celebrating the season together!
Hope you enjoyed a tour of my German Christmas Market.
Head over to Unknownmami and travel the world with her and friends.
Happy Holidays and Happy Sunday!
