When in November the days get shorter and colder and the winter holidays come closer, in Germany the Christmas markets open up. In some cities they are also called “Advents“-, „Lichter“-, „Winter“- or „Christkindlemarkt“. But they all have one thing in common - with their lined up wooden huts, brightly glittering lights, huge Christmas trees and the delicious smell of gingerbread, roasted almonds and freshly brewed mulled wine, they all tune people to the approaching Christmas season. At the lovingly decorated stalls of the retailers visitors can find various arts and crafts, culinary specialties from all over the world, as well Christmas cookies. Some delicacies even achieve extraordinary fame and every year provide for a large crowd and long queues. Such are the "peruanische Kartoffel" at the Essen’s Christmas market, which are really recommended by the way. But also regional classics such as sausages, fried fish, mushroom fritters and, of course, mulled wine in all variations enjoy great popularity.
Each Christmas market exudes its own, very individual charm that is worth discovering. If you like the festive mood of winter time, you will love Christmas markets! And because we are huge fans, we would like to share our most beautiful and preferred Christmas markets with you.
Have fun with your discovery tour and a nice start into the Christmas season, your jomizu - team.
