I finally made it to a few Christmas markets in Germany. The highlights of the German Christmas Markets are Gluwein (warm German wine) and FOOD. There are warm crepes, covered nuts, varieties of chocolate, and of course….wurst. In case you didn’t know, wurst is German for sausage. And the Germans love their sausage. Other than beer, I would say sausage has a very special place in their heart (or stomach). Neither wurst nor Gluwein appeal to me, BUT I love the lights and the festivities. There’s just something cheerful and peppermint about markets like this.
