German Christmas Market: Goslar

Merry Christmas! We have been enjoying the holiday to the fullest over here despite the un-Christmasy mild weather and more or less constant rain.  Undetterred, we travelled as far afield as Lower-Saxony town Goslar for their Christmas market. While I’m not a Christmas market grump, I don’t feel as though I’ve missed out on seasonal cheer when I skip going. This one won me over though, as the town is absolutely gorgeous to begin with and much care has been put into all the decorations. One thing we enjoy about Germany is how effortlessly Germans pull off a wealth of yummy Christmas foods and treats. Feuerzangenbowle, Kartoffelpuffer, sausages, what more can you ask for? Aside from the usual mulled wine (Glühwein) a trend this year has been “mulled” Caipirinha (affectionately called “Caipi” by Germans.) Anyone tried it? All images courtesy of my father-in-law. Merry Christmas!
