Christmas Markets

IMG_5150.JPG

One thing I love a lot about Christmas is the Christmas markets we are having all around the German-speaking parts of Europe. There are some which are only set up for a weekend and those which are there from the 1st Advent on until Christmas. In Vienna, I know some which are even open until December 26.

Today we are going to one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in the area. It is in Lindau, Germany. It is located at a beautiful and atmospheric harbor.

The atmosphere is so lovely and heartwarming when even the temperatures can be freezing. But next to beautifully decorated places and booths where gifts, ornaments, sweets, tea, and much more, can be bought you can also get fruit punch (with or without alcohol), hot spiced wine, eggnog, hot chocolate, and some typical food from the area like raclette (which is a special aromatic melted cheese on bread, if desired topped with spices, onions, ground chili, pickles,…)

I am looking so forward to get there. Here are some more pictures from the last time I was there, 3 years ago.
