2010 Christmas Markets in Germany

… because it’s that time of year again in Germany and Europe …

Put on an extra coat, turn on the lights, sip on some hot Glühwein or Kinderpunsch, munch on a foot-long Bratwurst, or dig into some Kartoffelpuffer with Apfelmus on the side.

Christmas markets (Weihnachtmärkte, Christkindlmärkte) open this week throughout Germany.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be dropping by Munich, Frankfurt, and Berlin …

The following three photos I’ve taken at previous Weihnachtsmärkte provide a small glimpse into the markets, the lights, (the crowds!), and the food:

I’m very much looking forward to visiting the markets again; photos and written snippets will follow in the weeks to come.

Ich wünsch’ euch alle frohe Weihnachten!
