We’ve had some snow so everything is starting to feel a little more festive, which is great news for those planning on attending one of the famous German Christmas markets which are now well underway. For those of us living in or visiting the Mosel valley, the unique combination of the magical market atmosphere coupled with picturesque surroundings really is unbeatable.
So, wrap up nice and warm and head off to indulge in a glass or two of the ubiquitous “Glühwein” (warm mulled wine) or “Eierlikor” (eggnog) whilst browsing the multitudes of stalls selling crafts, trinkets, sweets and a whole host of other traditional and not-so-traditional Christmas goods.
Most towns big and small have at least one market, some lasting just for a few days and others for much longer. You can find a selection of those that take place in and around the area by clicking here, or for those happy to take a day trip a little further afield, try here.
