Weinachtsmarkts

Time for some Weinachtsmarkts!

Our first was two weeks ago in Vienna.  This past week a few local ones have started and they will all be in full swing this weekend, just in time to start the Advent season.

At each market, there’s plenty of shopping to be done.  And since it’s cold, a hot mug of glühwein always hits the spot.

The best part?  No one lets the weather dictate whether or not they get outside.

Goddess and I spent a great Thanksgiving afternoon in the cold, rain mixing with snow, in a small Weinachtsmarkt just down the street from the snow-covered Kiaserdom zu Speyer, which will celebrate its 950th anniversary next year.

And that’s something to hoist the glühwein to.

    1. You’re welcome, Nicole. I suspect I’ll post more over the next month or so.

      I was wondering the other day how well a Weinachtsmarkt would go over in the US. I suspect they have something similar up in Wisconsin, Minnesota, but don’t know for sure. They sure would be great everywhere else.

      It did go well. We don’t do anything crazy since it’s now just the two of us. But we certainly work to make it memorable.
