Der Weihnachtsmarkt

The Christmas markets in Germany are known by various different names, most commonly Weihnachtsmarkt, Christkindlmarkt, or Adventmarkt.

The markets offer traditional food and drink, such as Lebkuchen or Glühwein, but also craftwork such as Christmas tree decorations.

There are markets in most German towns. In the larger towns they run for most of Advent, the smaller ones are only for a weekend.

The most famous markets are Nuremberg, Dresden, Erfurt, Frankfurt and Cologne.

In the coming podcasts we will be talking more about German Christmas traditions.
