“The oh-so-yummy Glühwein, x-massy cakes, delicious chocolate crepes, lavish dinners” flashed when a bottle of Glühwein came to my sight while cleaning our wine cellar this weekend and instantly I found myself in the Winter Dreamland.
The sweet fragrance of cinnamon-flavoured Glühwein rules the atmosphere then. The otherwise gloomy grey surroundings suddenly metamorphises into a colourful bright heaven-like place which we never want to leave.
The last year we explored some of the Christmas Markets in Germany. Here are a few glimpses.
Heidelberg Christmas market is an absolute favourite. No thinking twice, no planning required. Five minutes drive and we find ourselves there. Also, there is a special christmas market, that is organised at the castle.
Blue Ente in Mühlhausen, offers a lot of finger-licking delicacies and have an entirely unique concept for their decor and ambience.
During the Christmas festivities, it is a not to be missed dining place.
Last year we were very lucky(as our friend told us) to experience the Coca Cola Weihnachtstour in Neustadt. A friend who stays in Neustadt told us that she had been waiting to experience the Coca Cola Weihnachtstour since she was 15. And this year, it was her dream come true. With a completely different kind of decor, Coca Cola truck with a photo booth, a glimpse of Santa, a live band. It, definitely, is worth the wait.
The Weihnachtsmarkt of Köln (Cologne) was the most beautiful amongst the ones that we visited. Set up near the Cathedral, leading one to the main market, this Christmas market is a must visit. With lot of handcrafted items, delicious appetizers, grilled seafood, it is an absolute delight to be there.
The ever so posh, Dusseldorf, offers the creme-de-la-creme kind of decorations during the Christmas festivities. The feel here is completely different. And, a few sips of Killepitsch adds a tasteful look to this already glamorous city.
The christmas markets of Wiesbaden, Lambrecht, Dresden and Nuremberg are on our wish-list of the much awaited winters of 2015!
Thank you readers. I hope you too enjoyed a reading-tour.
