Christmas Markets and Christmas Dinner

I just would like to post some pictures of the Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas Market) in Wiesbaden. Christmas markets are one of the things I like most about Christmas in Germany, they always look so festive and merry, even though I have to say I almost never buy anything there. The foods and products they sell in Christmas markets tend to be more expensive than they're supposed to be. But I guess people still go there anyway to enjoy the Christmasy atmosphere.


Merry-go-round! (This pic is from a Weihnachtsmarkt in Frankfurt taken last year)


Christmas markets are usually always packed with people....


and more people...


You will often find booths selling sweets...


Christmas decorations...



more Christmas decorations...



and of course Lebkuchen or gingerbreads!


And what is Christmas without a nice Christmas dinner? German Roast Duck, that is for me :)!



And loads of chocolate...?? Thanks my lovely mother-in-law, who still loves to bestow us - me, my husband and my brother-in-law with bags of sweets even though we're not children anymore...


Look at our Christmas sweet-platters from 2007!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

  4. Thanks for a lovely peek into a German Christmas market - and meal! The duck looks wonderfully tender, and is that simmered greens on the side?

  5. @ Mae - The simmered greens are "Gr√ľnkohl" - curly kale. Normally eaten with sausage here, but it also tastes fine together with roast duck.
