Christmas marts are magical places, the smells of hot Glühwein, bratwursts, and freshly backed breads and candies fill the cold December air. The sound of the carousel and the twinkle of Christmas lights everywhere.
The colors and smells alone make the experience of attending a Christmas Mart one of a kind. There is noting like this magical holiday experience in the US. The food was as amazing as it smelled and the Glühwein kept me warm for hours.
While in Germany I visited Christmas marts in, Erlangen, Nurnberg, Bamberg, and Füssen. Below are a few of my favorite images from the many Christmas marts I visited.
