I know this post is very very late, I'm really sorry but as far as you know, I wasn't able to blog during Christmas market season.
I know that German Christmas market is popular all over the world and many of you are curious about it.
Honestly I didn't like Christmas season when I was younger, Christmas market rather scared me off with all the crowded streets, people getting drunk, the smell of warm alcohol and sausages floating the city.
But when I moved to Hannover, I learned that Christmas market can also be beautiful. Meeting friends, looking for gifts and watching all the colorful stalls and craftsmanship, seeing the illuminations and even eating candy suddenly became an event I was looking forward to.
To share the impressions of Hannovers Christmas market with you, I took my camera with me. Today I'm presenting the first part of my pics.
Recently it became very popular to have "medieval markets" in Germany, so many cities offer a 'normal' Christmas market and a medieval one in the old town part, as Hannover does, as well. They play bag pipe music, offer Met (a liquor made from honey) and other special drinks and food, sell medieval-styled goods like Celtic jewellery, fancy clothes or hand-made wooden crafts. It's a spectacular you mustn't miss!
