Back From The Christmas Markets of Germany

I've been away, did you miss me? I have just returned from a very chilly tour of the busy Christmas markets throughout Germany. It was so cold at one point, that my camera even stopped working! In the coming days, I will be featuring highlights from Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Nuremberg, Rothenberg, and Munich; each having its own magical Christmas charm. Our days were filled with sampling hot chocolate, stollen, and gingerbread sweets - the nights with gluhwein, a red wine blended and brewed with spices and served hot.

 A market in Berlin, near Humboldt University (above), and Nuremberg (below).

Decorations from Dresden's market.
A belltower view of Munich's rooftops in the snow.
More of the colorful trinkets that can be found in every market.


  1. Ooooo! can't wait to see more!My favorite Christmas ornaments from childhood were the ones my parents bought while they were stationed in Germany!Welcome home~

  2. You were missed Kim! These images are so very beautiful--i love the rows of stars at the Dresden market. Looking forward to more eye candy from your trip!!

  3. Oh my goodness - There is no way that I could have gone on your trip and been able to carry my suitcase home. The little wooden ornaments are the best! I would not have been able to help myself.

    Isn't it funny how a dusting of snow makes even the most charming cities even prettier?
