Holiday Signs

For my final post on the Christmas markets I’ll share some of the signs we saw.

Again, I would certainly recommend going to the Christmas markets in Europe.  I would love to do this again!

Rothenburg, Germany

Sarah and I walked around the city of Rothenburg on the high walls that surround the city.  It’s truly special.  First you climb several stairs and then you’re on your way.

It’s a great way to see the city.

There are many towers to go through on your way.

There’s really nothing else quite like it.

Isn’t it amazing?

 

 

 

 

Baden-Baden, Germany

The next stop on our tour of Christmas markets last year was Baden-Baden, Germany.  This was a really special market place.

Just beyond the market was a unique display of artwork that was gorgeous.

Once again, the food got our attention, but not only the food, the restaurant itself.  It was an enclosed porch of a beautiful hotel, but cold enough that they provided blankets at each chair.  So nice and cozy with warm cider!

Really yummy!

The breakfast buffet was fantastic too.

 

Colmar, France

Our second stop in search of Christmas markets last year was at Colmar, France.  This was in a beautiful part of the city called “La Petite Venise,” and you can see why with all the canals.

There were plenty of holiday decorations all around.

There was even a carnival with a fun roller coaster with “seats” in the shape of horses (and yes, they rocked back and forth as they went around the track).

Once again, the food was outstanding.

The markets had thousands of fun items to see.

There were many nativities all around too.

These faces carved into the entryway of the old cathedral were fascinating to me.

We will never forget beautiful Colmar!

 

Strasbourg, France

Here are more photos from Strasbourg last year during the after-Christmas markets.  Everything was decorated so beautifully.

Of course, the food is always good in France.

I called this “the sink that wasn’t a sink.”  

Christmas Markets

A year ago Sarah and I went to Europe to see the Christmas markets.  We loved it and would definitely recommend it as a unique holiday adventure.  We went between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

We landed in Frankfurt, Germany, rented a car, and headed to Strasbourg, France for the night.  It was wonderful to see all the huge decorations.

We loved this pretty village scene in the middle of the park.

This was only the start of a great adventure.
