I’ve been doing a lot of writing about Weinachtsmarkts.
And showing a lot of details from those markets. But if you haven’t been to one, those details don’t really give you a feel for the market.
So here’s an overview of one, the Bad Wimpfen Weinachtsmarkt, the oldest Christmas Market in Germany (seit [since] 1487). And that’s the Blauer Turm (Blue Tower) in the background, dating back from the 13th Century
All of those booths are selling something – ornaments, glüwein, or smoked horse meat (which is amazing, BTW).
The best part is seeing the continuation of history. History that stretches back further than the discovery of North America by Europeans.
