image Germany’s Christmas Markets - a feast for the senses. Christmas time in Germany is magical - when cities sparkle with thousands of candles, the breath of cinnamon and fir is in the air and local specialties are a delight to the palate. Beautifully decorated stalls offer handicrafts, glühwein and gifts, all the while, choirs and brass-bands provide festive musical accompaniment. The Christmas Market is an old tradition throughout Germany and dates back hundreds of years. Particularly popular with visitors are Nuremberg’s “Christkindlemarkt” and the “Striezelmarkt” in Dresden. But no matter where you go, the German Christmas Markets will give you true holiday spirit and bring back memories of childhood celebrations. (click here for more information)
