I still haven’t been to all of them, as that requires careful planning since some of them are really small and just a one or two-day event. But I do have a rather impressive Christmas market if I do say so myself – 17 in one month!
What I love most about the Christmas markets is that to a large extent they replace, or at least complement the popular beer halls. Friends will meet up for a mug of steamy hot Glühwein (mulled wine) at a Christmas market, instead of a beer hall.
Almost every group I’m in will have some sort of gathering at a Christmas market and that’s what I love – the spirit of coming together with friends and family! Keep checking back as I’m exploring new Christmas markets every year!
