  4. There is nothing like strolling through the busy streets at night-time. We have loved the Christmas markets in Aachen and Koln. Our favorite part? Warming up with a cup of mulled wine as we shop for goodies to bring back home.

    Thanks for bringing to mind a happy Christmastime memory.

  6. Christmas market is one of the attractions in Germany. I was fortunate to be in Hamburg and see the Christmas market this year. The atmosphere is really electrifying and mystique.
