Christmas Markets: Alternative Edition

22nd December 2014

When it comes to Christmas Markets, the Germans sure know what they are doing. I won’t bore you with the countless stand out markets you’ll see everywhere, but I wanted to share this peculiar take on the Christmas tradition: a market set in an abandoned theme park. It was a bit cold and a bit muddy, but being able to enjoy some gluhwein while sitting in miniature train car made up for it. Plus, I discovered a dish called Langosh – a East European deep fried flat bread which was delicious.

Do you have any favourite Christmas market recommendations, or surprising foods you found at them?

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

    Beautiful pictures, I think you’ve really captured the Christmas market atmosphere nicely! 🙂
    I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Austria, but we have some really beautiful Christmas markets in Vienna as well as on the countryside! 🙂 The markets in Vienna vary from being really touristy places to absolutely beautiful, smaller affairs which are normally preferred by the locals!

    Ah, I heard about it and I really wanted to go there but already travelled home to see my family. It’s nice to see a view impressions though. Obviously I have to go next year! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Merry Christmas! Anni
