Der Weihnachtsmarkt

Der WeihnachtsmarktThe 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 Gl├╝hwein, 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.
