🎄 A guide to beautiful Christmas markets in Germany to visit.
The origin of the Christmas markets goes back to late medieval markets in medieval German-speaking regions of Europe. Here the population stocked up on food and winter goods at the beginning of winter. It was not until the 14th century that confectioners, basket weavers, and toymakers were also allowed to open stalls.
Here's our Top 3 German Christmas markets:
1. Nuremberg Christmas Market was first held in 1628 and attracts more than two million visitors every season. Almost 200 wooden huts, uniformly in white and red design, create a cozy and festive atmosphere.
2. Dresden Christmas Market is the oldest Christmas market in Germany. Highlights of Dresden’s major traditional Christmas market include the Stollen Festival the Pyramid Festival, a huge Christmas carousel, and the largest nutcracker.
3. Cologne Christmas Market stands out because of its traditional appeal complementing the cobbled Altmarkt. The hip Christmas Ave. at the Bermuda Triangle is Köln’s gay and lesbian Christmas market.
